The first night game in Goodyear, Arizona this Spring season didn’t end in victory for the Tribe. The Indians still rapped out 13 hits and Sean Casey had a little extra addition to his cap.

Lonnie Chisenhall and Trevor Bauer lead Pitch, Hit & Run clinic for area kids

Tribe third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall and pitcher Trevor Bauer participated in an MLB Pitch, Hit and Run clinic today at the Reds Player Development Complex in Goodyear, AZ.  Along with Reds players Billy Hamilton and Devin Mesoraco, Bauer and Chisenhall coached about 50 kids through three skills stations: pitching, hitting and baserunning.  Highlights will run on MLB Tonight (MLB Network) and on Indians.com. Click here to learn more about MLB’s Pitch, Hit & Run program.

Hamilton, who stole 56 bases in 2014, got the kids moving at the baserunning station. Bauer helped the kids perfect their windups, while Mesoraco and Chisenhall worked on hitting. Lonnie, who made history with his bat after going 5 for 5 with 9 RBI in a game last year vs. Texas, fielded a number of questions from wide-eyed kids who were impressed by the feat.  Hope they paid close attention!

Indians Manager Terry Francona hosts Goodyear Fire Dept., other first responders at Tribe Spring Training

Indians Manager Terry Francona will play host to five nonprofit or first responder groups over the final month of Spring Training as a way to show his appreciation for the groups’ efforts in their respective fields.

Goodyear Little League baseball players first visited camp on March 7. On Friday, members of the Goodyear Fire Department visited, followed by Luke Air Force Base, Goodyear Police Department and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Each group’s participants will visit camp in the morning and either watch Indians Major League players take batting practice – or, if they choose, they can shag fly balls during BP with Tribe players. BP typically begins around 10:30AM.

Later, each group will receive tickets to that day’s game at Goodyear Ballpark on behalf of Francona, who also consistently plays host to similar groups at Progressive Field during the summer months.

“I love to recognize groups like these and this is a cool way to do it,” Francona said. “This is one small way we can give back to the community and we’re happy to.”

The complete schedule of group visits includes:

  • Goodyear Fire Department: Friday, March 13
  • Luke Air Force Base: Saturday, March 21
  • Wounded Warrior Project: March 24
  • Goodyear Police Department: March 29

Trevor Bauer mans @Indians during Friday’s games — and #BauerTakeover is a hit

CI_031315-129.CR2

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.

The sun is out, the snow has melted and the Progressive Field enhancements are moving right along. Renovations are still on schedule to be completed by the Indians Home Opener — on April 10 against Detroit.

The glass doors have gone in at the two-story, indoor-outdoor bar, officially named “The Corner.” Fans voted on bar names and chose “the Corner,” which pays homage to Tom Hamilton’s signature introduction – “We’re under way from the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.”

Cleveland Indians announce name of Progressive Field’s new two-story bar: ‘The Corner’

TheCorner

New two-story, indoor-outdoor bar features dramatic views of the field and city, nearly 40 taps of craft and domestic beers, fire pit on rooftop deck

Bar interior design will feature wood and more elements from the Columbus Road Bridge in the Flats, as preserved by local company Rustbelt Reclamation

Cleveland, OH—The Cleveland Indians announced on Thursday that after Tribe fans voted online in recent weeks, the new two-story bar in the Right Field District at Progressive Field will be named “The Corner.”

The bar’s logo and signage also will include “Carnegie and Ontario,” an homage to Tom Hamilton’s signature introduction – “We’re under way from the corner of Carnegie and Ontario” — on the Indians Radio Network. The indoor-outdoor bar will include nearly 40 beers on tap and a fire pit on the rooftop deck.

The new bar, bar back and canopy will feature elements salvaged from the old Columbus Road Bridge in Cleveland’s Flats. Additionally, The Corner features free-standing furniture that incorporates bridge decking and hand-made sand-casting patterns recovered from a foundry formerly located on East 71st Street. The Indians commissioned Cleveland-based Rustbelt Reclamation to design and construct these features as means to bring some of Cleveland into the ballpark.

Fans can enjoy The Corner with the Indians new $13 District Ticket presented by SportsTime Ohio. For $13, fans get a Standing Room Only ticket, and the first drink – 12-ounce beer (for those 21 and over), Pepsi product or bottled water – is on the Tribe! More information can be found at Indians.com/DistrictTicket.
