Indians Youth Baseball Summer Camps are in full swing, with week 2 set for this week in Mentor.

At the end of Week 1, former big leaguer and Cleveland native Matt Kata – the Indians Manager of Youth Baseball Development – and the rest of the camps’ instructors stopped by the barber to support Mike Aviles and his daughter, Adriana.

Adriana was recently diagnosed with leukemia, and Indians players, coaches and owner Paul Dolan have shaved their heads.

Tribe Youth Baseball Summer Camps continue throughout the summer, and it’s not too late to sign up for camps Independence, Bath and Strongsville.

Jason Kipnis & Michael Brantley Rock the Q

Kip & Brantley Cavs

We know that our guys have been supporting the team across the street well during their playoff run. Swish, Kluber, and Lonnie made appearances to root on LeBron James & gang in the first couple rounds – and the finals was no different.

After a 6-0 shutout win vs. the Mariners, Kip and Dr. Smooth decided they’d take in a game in the loud Quicken Loans Arena before they made the trip to Detroit.

They pumped up the crowd and were in full support. They are definitely all-in! WATCH

Seattle foul ball goes into Cleveland Indians radio booth, Tom Hamilton really lets Jim Rosenhaus have it


In Wednesday’s Cleveland Indians-Seattle Mariners game at Progressive Field, Mike Zunino fouled a ball right back — into the Indians radio booth.

Jim Rosenhaus did not catch it, and Tom Hamilton really let him have it.

Cleveland Indians fan catches two Yan Gomes home run balls in one game; Gomes signs them

Big Tribe fan Jacob McMichael had great seats for the Tribe’s narrow Tuesday loss to the Mariners: first row in the Bleachers.

If only he knew.

Yan Gomes hit a homer to the Bleachers in the second to make it 1-1.

Jacob snagged it.

After the Mariners carried a 3-1 lead into the ninth, the Tribe mounted a rally – which began with Gomes’ second homer of the night:

You can guess where this is going: Jacob caught this one, too.

The next day, Jacob tweeted this info to us:

Pretty cool thing, so heck yeah we helped! Front offce staffer Brent Overholt met Jacob in Streetsboro on Thursday morning. Brent delivered the baseballs to the Tribe’s PR crew, and Gomes was happy to sign both – and took a picture, too.

We’ll get the autographed baseballs back to Jacob soon!

Congrats, Jacob: Thanks for being a passionate Tribe fan, and congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Brandon Moss on ‘Intentional Talk': Hair/beard color, ransom, singing career and more


When Brandon Moss first came over in a trade this offseason from the A’s, we thought he was a little shy. He was in Cleveland for Tribe Fest, and seemed like a great guy — just maybe a little quiet.

It was all a facade.

You HAVE to watch this interview with Cleveland native Chris Rose and former big-leaguer Kevin Millar yesterday.

Apple CEO Tim Cook features Brandon Moss 100th home run ball in WWDC keynote, will pay Cleveland Indians bullpen’s ransom


Last Tuesday, Brandon Moss hit his 100th career homer in the Tribe’s win over Kansas City.

Unfortunately for him, the Tribe bullpen caught it – and those guys weren’t giving up the ball without a fight.

As you can see from the original list, a lot of our guys wanted Apple products – and they’re going to get them. Apple asked Brandon for the ball to use in the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, and Apple personally and securely escorted the ball to California for Monday’s event. Apple CEO Tim Cook used the ball in the opening of the WWDC keynote.

All in a day’s work.

Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan shaves head to support Mike Aviles, daughter Adriana

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last month, we told you why all Tribe players and coaches have shaved their heads: to support utility man Mike Aviles, whose daughter, Adriana, is battling leukemia.

Today, we added another man to the group: Indians owner Paul Dolan.

Aviles said throughout the 10-minute haircut — he’s a pretty good barber! — that he sincerely appreciated Dolan’s support for him, his daughter and the rest of the team.

So, Friday — a weird night at the ballpark.

OSU quarterbacks past and present — and Cleveland natives! — Troy Smith and Cardale Jones were on hand, as was Paula Abdul, who had a … danceoff? … with Slider.

Weird night.

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan: ‘Why Cleveland has the best — and most futuristic — rotation in baseball’

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yahoo! baseball writer Jeff Passan writes this week about the Tribe’s starting rotation, and how the front office’s approach is helping shape the group’s present and its future. An excerpt:

With Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar and Trevor Bauer, who starts Thursday night in a series-wrapping game against Kansas City, the Indians have four of the most desirable – and rarest – commodities in baseball: hard-throwing, strikeout-producing, young, under-control starting pitchers. The single most misleading statistic of the 2015 season is the ERA of Indians starting pitchers.

It’s what makes the next half-decade so exciting for Cleveland: Not only are Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar and Bauer under team control through the end of the 2020 season, they recognize that what Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz were to the 1990s, and Barry Zito, Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder were to the 2000s, they can be to the 2010s.
