GALLERY: Cleveland Indians pitchers Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw donate a turf wiffle ball field to Providence House
Cody and Mallory Allen, Bryan and Kristen Shaw, and the Cleveland Indians have donated a turf wiffle ball field to the Providence House, a crisis nursery located in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, with an official unveiling this morning.
Allen, Shaw and the Indians have partnered with The Motz Group to build the wiffle ball field, which will be located in Providence House’s back yard. Additionally, wiffle balls, bats and other equipment will be donated along with the field. Allen and Shaw spent time this morning playing wiffle ball and visiting with kids during the field unveiling!
Providence House is a nonprofit organization that strives to end child abuse and neglect by protecting at-risk children, empowering families in crisis and by building safer communities. Cleveland Indians players and the Wives Association are long-time volunteers and supporters of Providence House.
The Indians won the club’s ninth straight at home on Monday night, a come-from-behind 7-4 win over the Rays. The Tribe’s AL Central lead is at a game, with KC idle on Monday.
Francisco Lindor and Juan Uribe hit homers in the eighth – Lindor a solo shot leading off and Uribe a two-run shot later – to break open a 4-4 game after seven. Uribe has hit homers in three straight games for the first time in his career.
The Tribe got on the board in the fourth, as Carlos Santana drove in Francisco Lindor with an RBI fielder’s choice; Lindor had singled, moved up on Mike Napoli’s single and stole third. Rajai Davis and Jason Kipnis later pulled off a double steal after Kipnis’ fifth-inning RBI single.
Carlos Santana hit his 15th homer in the sixth, again tying him for the team lead with Napoli; the homer traveled an estimated 440 feet, per MLB’s Statcast technology, landing above the shrubs in the center field batter’s eye at Progressive Field. In the seventh, Yan Gomes doubled and Davis got him home with a sac fly to tie it at 4.
Josh Tomlin pitched seven innings, allowing four runs. Bryan Shaw struck out the side in the eighth, and Cody Allen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 14th save.
The Indians entered Monday’s game second in the AL and third in baseball in steals (51), and after stealing three more bases in three tries on Monday, the club’s success rate (now 79.4%) is third in the AL and baseball.

Francisco Lindor had three hits and Carlos Carrasco pitched 6.1 strong innings for his second win in a 3-2 Indians victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.
Mike Napoli had an RBI double, scoring Lindor, in the third, and Rajai Davis and Lindor drew bases-loaded walks off Seattle starter Wade Miley in the fifth. Napoli and Lindor had highlight-reel defensive plays as well.
Carrasco (2-0, 2.79) allowed just a Kyle Seager homer in 6.1 innings, and has allowed just two runs and struck out 13 over his last two starts (14.1 IP).
Zach McAllister, Bryan Shaw (bouncing back after two rough outings) and Cody Allen pitched the final 2.2 innings, with the Mariners scratching out a run in the ninth for the final margin.
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.

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.
