The morning started out with a little rain, but didn’t hold the squad from getting in a good day’s work. Nick Maradone, Nick Hagadone, Carlos Carrasco & Danny Salazar all faced live hitters as the guys prep for Tuesday’s spring opener.

Only a few more days until the first spring game against the Reds. Before the teams took it to the diamond, they decided to raise some money for charity.

Long-time Tribe fan and WWII veteran spends a special day at Goodyear Ballpark

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

George Reese, a World War II veteran and a loyal Indians fan, visited Spring Training last week to get a special tour of Goodyear Ballpark and enjoy a day full of Tribe baseball.

George is a WWII vet who was stationed in Hawaii for the majority of his time serving our country. He is also a long-time Tribe fan and has been following the team since the days of Bob Feller.

When you follow a team for almost 80 years, it stops feeling like a team and starts feeling like family. That is why when George was asked who his favorite player was, he just couldn’t decide. He explained that he loves them all equally, and that asking him that question was like asking him to pick his favorite grandkid.

While at Goodyear Ballpark, George and his family spent the morning touring the facility and getting a behind-the-scenes look at the players’ springtime home. After being served breakfast in the Minor League dining room, George spent the day watching the team go through drills and take batting practice.

With a view from the warning track, George and his family took in the action and got to see Jason Kipnis, Tyler Holt, Nick Swisher, Yan Gomes and other players take their cuts. In between turns at the plate, Indians players went over and talked with George thanking him for his support of the Cleveland Indians and his service to our country. George even received an autographed ball from Michael Bourn.

“In his 97 years, I am fairly certain that yesterday was one of the highlights of his entire life. I mean that,” Mike Reese, George’s grandson, wrote in an email. “I don’t recall a time where he sounded so excited.”

Creating memories, connecting generations and celebrating families- that’s what it’s all about.
