Like the rest of us, Cleveland Indians players enjoy traditional — and maybe some no-so traditional — Thanksgiving treats. We asked some of our guys about their holiday favorites, and here’s what they had to say:
Roberto Perez: Turkey, rice and beans – we have different traditions in Puerto Rico
Cody Anderson: Stuffing
Jeff Manship: Stuffing
Carlos Carrasco: Turkey
Austin Adams: Smoked turkey – cook it on a smoker and over coals for 12 hours
We also got these responses when we asked the question a few years back:
Terry Francona: Stuffing! The real stuffing. Not that (crap) in a box.
Bryan Shaw: My favorite Thanksgiving dish is deep-fried turkey because frying the turkey is fun — I do it myself while other stuff is cooking inside.
Corey Kluber: Favorite dish is my mom’s turkey soup because it was something special we only had on Thanksgiving.
Yan Gomes: Sweet potatoes.
Josh Tomlin: Turkey and dressing that my grandmother makes and broccoli and cheese casserole.
Trevor Bauer: Favorite dish is between cranberry sauce on biscuits and twice baked potatoes. Favorite dessert is my sister’s cherry pie.
Mike Sarbaugh: Pecan Pie. I always look forward to warming up a piece of pecan pie with vanilla ice cream on top.

Cleveland, OH— The Cleveland Indians will play host to a celebrity bartending event to benefit VeloSano following the Tribe and Tigers Noon game on Wednesday, June 24. The event will be held at Progressive Field’s “The Corner” in the Right Field District, which has become one of the hottest spots in Cleveland featuring nearly 40 beers on tap.
The Indians celebrity bartending lineup includes:
- Manager Terry Francona
- President Mark Shapiro
- GM Chris Antonetti
- 2B Jason Kipnis
- RHP Trevor Bauer
- RHP Carlos Carrasco
- RHP Danny Salazar
- RHP Bryan Shaw
- LHP Marc Rzepczynski

*All celebrity bartenders subject to change
Fans are encouraged to attend the Noon game vs. the Tigers and stay post-game to support the cause, with tips and 20% of proceeds going directly to VeloSano. The Indians will have a silent auction available to raise additional money. Snack items such as nachos and peanuts will also be available for purchase.
Fans not able to attend the game are still invited without a game ticket to attend the event and enter Progressive Field at the Right Field Gate near the New Era Team Shop off East 9th St. 30 minutes following last out of the game. The event is expected to conclude 3.5 hours (approx. 6:30pm) following the last out.
The Indians partnered once again with Cleveland Clinic to support VeloSano, an annual charity bike ride event, held this summer July 17-19 in Cleveland. The Indians will also field a team of nearly 60 riders, including Indians Chairman and CEO Paul Dolan and other members of the Indians front office.
VeloSano, Latin for “swift cure,” is a major community fundraising initiative, where 100% of dollars raised by VeloSano participants directly benefits cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. At its core, it’s a cycling event where riders commit to raise a pre-determined dollar amount by requesting support from personal contacts.

Busy day around here: Tribe players visited Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, then took part in our Tribe Fest VIP events for our Season Ticket Holders.
Here’s a recap in Tweets:
Editor’s Note: This post has been updated to reflect Corey Kluber signing a contract extension that keeps him in Cleveland through at least 2019, with club options for 2020 and 2021.
With the World Series nearing an end – and what a series it’s been – baseball’s offseason will move into high gear, beginning with the postseason awards the week of Nov. 10. Those include MVP, where Michael Brantley should finish in the top 3, and Cy Young, where Corey Kluber should have a good chance at winning.
Before the offseason begins, it’s prudent to take a look at exactly where the Tribe’s roster stands – especially since it’s in a good place: 16 players are under Indians control through at least 2016, with the team’s top young players – Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and more – under control even longer.
Here’s a look at the current Indians roster and the number of seasons through which individual players are scheduled to be under club control. Certainly this can change over the course of an offseason – for instance contract extensions to Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes and Jason Kipnis last year.
Under club control through at least 2019
- Corey Kluber
- Jason Kipnis
- Yan Gomes
- Danny Salazar
Under club control through at least 2018
- Cody Allen
- Zach McAllister
- Nick Hagadone
Under club control through at least 2017
- Michael Brantley
- Bryan Shaw
- Lonnie Chisenhall
- Carlos Carrasco
Under club control through at least 2016
- Nick Swisher
- Michael Bourn
- Carlos Santana
- Marc Rzepczynski
- Josh Tomlin
Additionally, a group of young Tribe players who impacted the big-league club are under control for even longer; they’re just into their Major League service time clock, so the club controls their rights even past 2019. That group includes:
- Jesus Aguilar
- Kyle Crockett
- Tyler Holt
- TJ House
- CC Lee
- Roberto Perez
- Jose Ramirez
- Zach Walters

Participants can face off against Tribe players including Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis, among others
