CLE native Kid Cudi meets boyhood idol, Slider, throws 1st pitch
Who was Kid Cudi most excited to meet at Progressive Field on Tuesday?
Slider, the beloved fuchsia mascot for the Tribe.
“He’s been doing this for so long!” Scott Mescudi said with a smile. He recalled seeing Slider back when he was a kid — something you never forget.
Slider, always in a divalicious mode, struck some crazy poses with Cudi on the field.
When asked afterward if he had done any preparation for the impending first pitch, Cudi exclaimed, “That was it, right there!”
The pitch may have had a bounce, of which outfielder Tyler Holt assured Cudi that his pitch was much better than 50 cent’s — a bit of a backhanded compliment — but all of the Tribe fans cheered for the artist/actor that proudly represents this city.
