Can you think of a better way to spend a sunny Monday afternoon than watching a walk-off win at the ballpark? Over 6,000 children from the area experienced just that at Weather Education Day, presented by Time Warner Cable.

The morning featured a weather education presentation from WKYC meteorologists Betsy Kling and Hollie Strano, with science experiments and interactive games. Students also enjoyed cartoons, a Radio Disney appearance, and a Youth Baseball Camp demonstration prior to the Indians – Mariners game at noon. All students participating also received a Weather Education Booklet.

Indians utility man Mike Aviles spoke about how weather affects the game of baseball, specifically the need to adjust to the direction of the wind and where the sun is located in the sky. He also stressed the importance of wearing sunscreen to prevent sunburn and skin cancer.

Select students from Roehm Middle School experienced the game in the Indians Social Suite,  which included a social media discussion with Wally the Waterdrop from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District:
