Trevor Bauer mans @Indians during Friday’s games — and #BauerTakeover is a hit
The @indians account had a familiar face running the show as the Tribe played split-squad games in Goodyear and Mesa on Friday afternoon. Tribe pitcher Trevor Bauer – known on Twitter as @BauerOutage – spent the afternoon in the press box live tweeting happenings from both games, having a little fun at his teammates expense and answering questions from fans on Twitter.
Fans followed along using #BauerTakeover and Bauer even gave away a few tickets to a game back in Cleveland by asking fans to finish lyrics from one of his original songs.
He was so entertaining that by the end of the game, @Indians followers were requesting he Tweet all the games. Lucky for us – and our job security – he is needed more on the mound, but we hope he’ll come back and join us for another #BauerTakeover.
