PHOTO GALLERY: Cleveland Indians Season Ticket Holder party at Progressive Field

In addition to perks like big savings over single-game ticket prices, Opening Day/Postseason priority and more, one of the biggest advantages of being an Indians Season Ticket Holder is our annual summer party, in which only STHs have the opportunity to get autographs from our players in a relaxed setting (well, except for the initial rush).

That was no different on Sunday, as Tribe players and Season Ticket Holders had a great afternoon after the Indians series-win-clinhing victory over Minnesota. (That gallery is here.)

Rhodes HS pitcher who threw Progressive Field perfect game meets Indians pitchers

CI_052015-063.CR2

Rhodes and Lincoln West high schools long have dominated the Senate Athletic League, playing in the championship game at Progressive Field each of the last nine seasons.

So while it wasn’t terribly surprising to see the teams again this year at the ballpark on May 20, the outcome still was surprising.

Rhodes senior Juan Perez threw a perfect game.

On Thursday, he – along with his coach, Phil Gary, and two teammates – were rewarded with the chance to watch Tribe BP from field level.

They even got to meet a guy who flirted with a similar accomplishment this year: Danny Salazar, who had a perfect game into the sixth earlier in the season in Tampa. Sandy Alomar and Carlos Santana also visited.

“That was awesome,” Perez said of getting to meet the Tribe hurlers.

Perez said he knew he was pitching well that day, but didn’t really know he had a perfect game until his teammates mobbed him. Instead, he was focused on something else.

“I wanted to hurry because our high school graduation was that night (at Cleveland State),” Perez said, laughing.

Perez will study accounting and play baseball this fall at Cuyahoga Community College, and we’ll certainly be watching and keeping tabs on him.

The Indians underwrite all Cleveland Metropolitan School District baseball and softball programs, with the championship baseball game being played at Progressive Field each season.
