Justine Siegal, the Lake County Captains, and the Baseball Heritage Museum at League Park are holding a unique Girls and Women Only Baseball Game.
The game is open to mothers and daughters, aunts and nieces, sisters, or any female who has a love and passion to play real baseball (not fast pitch softball). Individual players are welcome and encouraged to play. The game is open to all age groups and skill levels. The fee to play at historic League Park is $25 per pair or $15 per individual.

You’re invited to play on the same field where Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run, where Joe DiMaggio got his 56th hit during his consecutive game hitting streak, where Satchel Paige, Bob Feller, and Cy Young all pitched, and where legends of the game like Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb, and Shoeless Joe Jackson made their mark. After the game, the Baseball Heritage Museum will be open for you to browse through the history of the game.

The game is scheduled for Sunday, August 14th starting at 1:00. League Park is located on the east side of Cleveland at 66th and Lexington Avenue. It is three blocks north of Chester Avenue.

Please RSVP to Tom Fuerst: fuerstbase@yahoo.com.

First ever Tribe Hackathon to be held at Progressive Field this weekend

Copy of Tribe_hackathon_logo_outlines

As we mentioned previously, we had a free-of-charge registration to take part in our Tribe Hackathon — which is happening THIS weekend at Progressive Field.

This Hackathon has gained incredible praise, and Kevin Kleps from Crain’s Cleveland says here that he and many others believe it will be the first of its kind here, but probably not the last.

Kleps writes, “Tech Elevator — a Cleveland-based, 14-week coding bootcamp for students — has partnered with the Indians on the first Tribe Hackathon, and it’s an event Tech Elevator CEO Anthony Hughes believes will continue to grow in popularity.”

The premise of the Hackathon you may ask? Well Kevin Kleps asked Anthony Hughes the same question, and got this response: “Even though there’s so much data in baseball, we intentionally kept it really broad,” Hughes said of the hackathon’s premise. “We said, ‘Let’s take a step back and let people be creative. How can we enhance the fan experience?’ I think we’ll be really surprised by what we see.”

The first hackathon has gone above and beyond original expectations, as Kleps notes further in his article.

“The 19 teams competing for the top prize started developing their ideas on May 6. Friday night, the Progressive Field portion of the hackathon kicks off with a three-hour networking event, which begins at 6. The hackathon starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at Progressive Field, and the presentations and demos kick off at 4 p.m. in the Terrace Club.

The 19 teams have a total of 63 software developers. The group ranges from representatives from Medical Mutual, Avantia and Dakota Software, to students from Case Western Reserve, Kent State and Ohio State universities.

Hughes said the range of ideas is also vast — from such topics as the “big data” that’s associated with baseball, to ways to find the shortest lines in the restrooms, and ordering food and drinks from your seat.”

As for those involved, they expect it to be “nuts” here at Progressive Field on Saturday as the first-ever Tribe Hackathon takes place! Nuts, but fun — as the goal is for the event to continue to grow bigger and bigger each year.

Sign petition for Bob Feller to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

feller“If the game proved anything it proved that we must win this war so that we may be able to continue to play and to see baseball games, instead of learning how to do the goose step.”

-Cleveland Plain Dealer, July 8, 1942

Preparing to pitch at Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Bob Feller buttoned up his uniform. For the first time during his professional career, Feller donned a uniform that was not a Cleveland issued garment. As a member of the US Navy, Feller and a group of servicemen prepared to take on the American League All-Stars to help raise money for the war effort.

The United States All-Service team, coached by Mickey Cochrane, featured Feller, John Rigney (Navy-White Sox), John Grodzicki (Army-Cardinals), Mickey Harris (Army-Red Sox), Fred Hutchinson (Navy-Tigers), Frank Pytlak (Navy-Red Sox), Ken Silvestri (Army-Yankees), John Sturm and Morrie Arnovich (Army-Giants).

Opposing the service team was the American League All-Stars. Future Hall of Famers Hal Newhouser, Lou Boudreau, Joe Gordon, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams highlighted a star-studded roster.

The Plain Dealer reported that the event had a World Series type of atmosphere. Beginning with the 6:30 p.m. batting practice, the event featured the Fort Hayes band, Marine Corps drill, Fort Custer tank destroyer battalion and artillery outfit, parade of tanks, Great Lakes Naval Training Station band, V formation and a flag raising. The baseball game did not even start until 9 p.m.

The ballpark was dolled up in red, white and blue bunting and flags of the United Nations were draped from the upper deck. Photos of Douglas MacArthur were affixed to the walls at the base of the stands. A crowd of 62,094 turned out to see Feller and the Servicemen drop a 5-0 decision to the All-Stars. Feller pitched into the second inning before leaving, down 3-0. Fans understood that perhaps Feller didn’t have his best stuff due to his Navy duties taking precedent of his time. Famed Plain Dealer writer, Gordon Cobbledick wrote it this way:

“American League pitching was too sharp for batting eyes dulled by months of devotion to another task. American League bats were too potent for pitching arms grown rusty in the service of a greater cause than baseball. This was the story of the United States Service-American League All-Star game at the stadium last night before one of the greatest crowds of Cleveland sports history.”

Interestingly enough, even during an unofficial game such as this one, fans at Cleveland Municipal Stadium booed the Yankees’ star Joe DiMiaggio. He was quoted saying, “I can’t understand it. I don’t know of anything I’ve done to deserve it.”

Underlying the spectacle was the benefit of the game. For every ticket sold, $1 in War Stamps was included. The event raised between $130,000 and $150,000 for the war effort.

Bob Feller used his celebrity in the best way he could during the early part of the war. This game is just one reason why we believe Bob Feller deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Please help and sign the petition.
