Tom Hamilton Signs Contract Extension

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!!!

We’re Under Way At The Corner…

With the Super Bowl out of the way it’s time to really start focusing on basketball as the Cavs make a run to the Finals. And don’t forget right around the corner is BASEBALL SEASON! I don’t know about you but I get goosebumps thinking about Tom Hamilton uttering those wonderful words: “We’re under way at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario!”

A Cheat Sheet For Tonight’s Tribe Game Courtesy @zgebler

I found this little piece of brilliance on Twitter this morning while going through my feed.  As you know, the Indians are hosting the Wild Card game tonight a Progressive Field against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays in a one game playoff which will determine who goes on to face the Red Sox on Friday.  Here’s hoping that we get to hear the “GONE!!!” part of this flow chart quite often tonight.  Let’s Go Tribe!!!

A Swing And A Drive… Are You Kidding Me?!?!?

In case you haven’t noticed (and judging by the attendance you haven’t) the Indians are in the thick of the playoff race here in late September.  Last night, Jason Giambi sent the Progressive Field crowd home happy when he hit a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to beat the Chicago White Sox.

If you’re a baseball fan you already know this, but Cleveland is lucky to have two of the best voices in the business to call our games: Matt Underwood and Tom Hamilton.  Hamilton has long been known as one of the best voices in baseball and his home run calls have become iconic.  Underwood… especially last night… has been taking up the mantle of home run calls as well.  Here’s both of them in all their glory.

– Matt Underwood’s Call
– Tom Hamilton’s Call

I’m typically a Hamilton guy, but I think (at least for last night) I may have to give the nod to Underwood.  Either way, it was an incredible win and it put the Tribe that much close to playoff baseball.  Tonight the Indians close the regular season at Progressive Field.  Get out and support them!

We’re well into the swing of baseball season here in Cleveland.  And when you venture down to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario you’re sure to see one super fan making the rounds – Slider!!!

I’m not really sure what Slider is supposed to be (aside from a huge Tribe fan) but he does a great job cheering on our Indians.  They’re going for their 7th victory in a row today down at Progressive Field.  Let’s go Tribe!!!
