In honor of Father’s Day, TribeVibe recently met with various Indians players and discovered the “Top 10 Best Things about Dad.”
10. It might sound weird, but he was very hard on me as a kid. As a kid, I was a little resistant to that; looking back now, I can understand why [he was hard on me]. He wanted me to achieve more than he ever achieved in life. I look back at it now, and I really appreciate it. – Mike Aviles
9. He’s always there for me, whenever I call. He’s always there to support me. – Mark Reynolds
8. Being an example for me is a big thing. Since I was a little kid, the way he raised me was to do things right. He was in the Dominican Army for 13 years, so that was the way I was raised — to do everything right. – Ubaldo Jimenez
7. I think the best thing about him is that he was always there. I was fortunate enough to have him always home, always willing to do anything that I wanted to do — any sport, any activity. That’s what I try to do with my kids. – Nick Hagadone
6. He’s beautiful; this is one special day for him, and I am happy [about] that. I move too much, play too much, and don’t visit my mom and dad [enough]; it’s crazy. – Carlos Santana
5. The best thing about my dad is probably just his support for me throughout the course of my life. Credit him for me being where I am today. He’s the one who really got me started with this game. – Drew Stubbs
4. He is always looking at the bright side of stuff; he is very positive. He is always looking at the good side of things. There’s not one thing I can say. – Scott Kazmir
3. He’s my dad; no matter what, he’s my dad. He’s taught me everything I know, from baseball to being a man. Being a preacher, he taught me a lot about my beliefs and how I was raised. The way I’ve turned out is all a tribute to how he raised me. He’s my dad. – Ryan Raburn
2. He [used to] take me to the stadium to practice. If I wanted to play catch with someone or swing the bat, I’d do it with him. I did everything with my dad when I was a kid. – Carlos Carrasco
1. For me, he’s the best dad. He’s always been [there] for me. He’s the best dad in the world. – Asdrubal Cabrera

Yes, we’re a little behind on the craze. Sue us. We’ve been a little busy, you know, with Spring Training and all.
We think, though, that the Harlem Shake: Tribe Town 216 edition is worth the wait. On Monday, we teased it with a partial roster; today, we bring you the full video, with, in our humble opinion, the best “Shake” intro of them all.
Hope you enjoy.

Tribe Fest to offer fans unprecedented access and personal interaction with Indians players and more
The Indians announced a unique new event will take place this winter to get Tribe fans ready for the 2013 season. Progressive Field will host Tribe Fest, presented by KeyBank, on Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20.
Tribe Fest was designed based on the feedback of Tribe fans from previous team events, and will offer fans of all ages unprecedented access to Indians players, coaches, and alumni.
“We want to provide our fans an opportunity to have personal interaction with our players, with the ballpark, our broadcasters, and many members of our front office,” said Indians’ Senior Director of Marketing Sanaa Julien. “Those personal interactions are what create lifelong memories for our fans.”
The event will feature a large contingent of current Indians players, including second baseman Jason Kipnis, catcher Carlos Santana, infielder Mike Aviles, third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, and pitchers Vinnie Pestano, Carlos Carrasco, Corey Kluber, Zach McAllister and Cody Allen.
In addition to meeting the players, taking photos and getting autographs, fans will have the opportunity to take part in a range of interactive activities.
“We’ll open locations that are typically closed off on game days,” said Julien. “That includes the batting cages, the clubhouse, press interview room, and we’ll have at least a dozen players plus alumni and our broadcast teams.”
Tribe Fest will take place from Noon to 6:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday, with most activities taking place in the indoor service levels of Progressive Field. Kids 12 and under can attend the event for free and regular admission is $10.
All tickets will be delivered via mail and fans are encouraged to buy tickets early as there is a limited supply available. All attendees must print and fill out a waiver to enter the ballpark, and Gate A will serve as the entrance for the event.
