If you’re a Cleveland baseball fan, you know Tom Hamilton. You may not know what he looks like, but you DEFINITELY know what he sounds like. Tom is the Voice of the Cleveland Indians and today the Tribe announced that he had signed a new multi-year contract extension. Summers at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario never sounded so good. A SWING AND A DRIVE!!!
The Home Opener is only 12 days away – are you ready for some baseball?
Baseball is back in Cleveland!!! The Indians opened up their home season yesterday at Progressive Field when they hosted the New York Yankees. The Home Opener (referred to by the Indians as Opening Day) sold out in only 6 minutes the day tickets went on sale to the general public. This picture was taken from my seats in section 521 and I was THRILLED to be there.
Downtown Cleveland was packed hours before the game with folks excited about Indians baseball. The weather was beautiful and even though the Tribe lost I think it’s safe to say that everyone is happy to have baseball back!
Today’s the day Indians fans… it’s the 2013 Home Opener!!! It’s been a long time coming and fans simply cannot wait to return to Progressive Field to cheer on our Tribe!
I saw this beautiful picture on Twitter this morning capturing the incredible sunrise over Progressive Field. I can’t for the life of me find the tweet so I can’t give proper credit. If you know who took this photo PLEASE let me know so I can give credit where it’s due.
It’s baseball season. Get out and cheer for our Indians. Let’s go Tribe!
As you well know, the 2013 baseball season is officially here! The Indians opened up the 2013 campaign on the road with a WIN in Toronto last night. If the buzz on Twitter for the Tribe was any indication, this town is electric for some Indians baseball this season!
And while Opening Day here in town isn’t until Monday afternoon (4:05 against the Yankees in case you’ve been living under a rock) I just had to post some Progressive Field love. This pic was actually taken on Opening Day 2011. As you can see it was a beautiful day. If the reports hold true we’re in for a similar day next Monday as well. Let’s go Tribe!!!
Who else is excited for some Indians baseball? Are you going to Opening Day on Monday?
It’s been a long and cold off season for Cleveland Indians fans, but we’re finally on the home stretch toward Opening Day for our beloved Tribe. We’ll be seeing a ton of new faces when the Indians trot onto the field next week and I for one an super excited about this team.
For quite a few Clevelanders (myself included) Opening Day is a holiday that we look forward to every single day from the time the previous season ends. Thanks to the Official Cleveland Indians Facebook page for posting such an awesome photo today.
Wintertime in Cleveland can be downright dreary. I’ve lived here for a long time so I try REALLY hard not to be the person complaining about the weather in Northeast Ohio. After all… it’s CLEVELAND. What did we expect? This winter hasn’t even been that terrible with the exception of a couple of nasty snowstorms. That said, I’m still super excited for Spring to hit this year. It’s just been so gray for so long.
Luckily on my way to work the other day I saw a light at the end of the tunnel… Proof positive that here in Cleveland we do indeed have more that just 50 shades of gray.
Spring is coming! Opening Day for the Indians is just around the corner and there WILL be a day when we see the sun shine again. And I for one simply cannot wait.
