The Indians and STO celebrate #TribeSocial
Several-hundred Tribe fans took part in a special event on Monday, October 1 as the Indians and STO celebrated Social Media Appreciation Night at Progressive Field. The attendees included some of Cleveland’s most active and social media savvy sports fans.
The fans gathered on the Budweiser Patio in right field before the game. Indians Pitcher Vinnie Pestano met with fans and answered questions with topics ranging from baseball coaching to his favorite superheroes.
Indians President Mark Shapiro also conducted a Q&A session with those in attendance, as he discussed the club’s plans both on and off the field.
Attendees also had access to various giveaways and raffle prizes, as well as a free dinner buffet courtesy of STO.
Fans that weren’t able to attend can find a timeline of the event by using the event’s hashtag #TribeSocial on Twitter.
Many of the fans in attendance had previously been involved with the Indians Social Suite, which provides a unique social media experience with great views of the on-field action and the ability to network in their own private, Wi-Fi enabled suite.
Though the 2012 season is coming to a close, interested fans should stay tuned over the off-season as the Indians begin to roll out social media initiatives and the application process for the 2013 Social Suite.
