Kluber’s Nomination Letter: 

The Cleveland Indians are honored to nominate Corey Kluber for the 2016 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award. After winning the 2014 AL Cy Young Award, he has continued to excel as the ace of the pitching staff, while expanding his personal commitment to positively impact veterans and youth in the Cleveland community.

Throughout the 2016 season, Corey and his wife, Amanda, have committed encouraging and reaching out to wounded veterans at the Louis Stoke Cleveland VA Medical Center. Each month, Corey visits rehabilitating military veterans, spends time building personal relationships, and provides memorable experiences and autographed memorabilia for our servicemen and women. He will visit with veterans in the Spinal Cord Injury & Dysfunction Center, blind rehabilitation and other long-term care programs. Currently, there are six scheduled visits where Corey will invest time with over one hundred veterans throughout the season. In addition, the Kluber’s will look to host many of these rehabilitating veterans at Cleveland Indians home games whenever possible. The Kluber’s dedication to these hospital visits represents their personal passion and appreciation for our country’s veterans, in particular, showing support for those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

In addition to his commitment to serving our veterans, Corey hosts young patients from Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital every Wednesday home game as part of his Kluber’s Kids program. Through this program, Corey spends time getting to know each special guest and his/her family personally on-field during batting practice. He also provides an autographed jersey and memorabilia, and hosts them during the game with 10 Club Level tickets including all-you-can-eat food.  With 12 events in 2016, Corey hopes to create special memories for young children and their families here in Cleveland.

It’s a genuine dedication and appreciation for the veterans and youth of our local community that makes Corey Kluber an exemplary candidate for the Bob Feller Act of Valor Award.

104 year old Tribe fan celebrates Mother’s Day and birthday at Progressive Field

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Birthday girl Emily Serian, also known as Nana, says she’s been a Tribe fan for all 104 years of her life. Serian, who hails from Punxsutawney, Penn. and now lives in Cleveland, attended Sunday’s game with her family to celebrate Mother’s Day and her 104th birthday.

Serian, who is one of 17 kids, has had an interest in baseball since she was young — she grew up around the sport and always attended her brothers’ baseball games. Her love for baseball grew when she married her husband and they started attending Indians games together in the 1940s. Serian recalled her trip to the 1948 World Series saying, “We packed up a picnic and traveled to Cleveland… it was one of the most exciting times of my life.”

Since then, Serian has always been very involved with the Indians. Other than attending as many games as she possibly can, in 2012 she threw out the first pitch to Indians pitcher Zach McAllister for her 100th birthday. Then in 2014, accompanied Indians alumnus Omar Vizquel on the field when he was inducted into the Indians Hall of Fame. Throughout the years, Serian has become acquainted with other greats including legendary Tribe centerfielder Kenny Lofton and has made friends with various Indians Front Office employees.

As for current Indians players, Serian says she cheers for them all, but her favorites include outfielder Michael Brantley and second baseman Jason Kipnis. During Sunday’s game, Serian said, “I still love coming to games and it feels good to see [the Indians] play… I am so thankful to be here.”

Cleveland Indians announce 2016 Honorary Bat Girl

IMG_3944

Major League Baseball announced the winners of the 2016 Honorary Bat Girl contest, which recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and who demonstrate a commitment to supporting the fight against the disease. Winners have been selected to represent each of the 30 MLB Clubs and will be recognized on-field at Major League ballparks on Sunday, Mother’s Day.

Fans from across the United States and in Canada shared inspirational stories of hope and motivation in their experiences in the fight against breast cancer, as well as the reasons they, or their nominees, should represent their favorite team.

Eva Johnson was selected as the Indians Honorary Bat Girl and will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Sunday. A Tampa, Fla., native, Johnson’s family originally hails from Cleveland and she’s been a lifelong Tribe fan.

Johnson, who has been cancer-free for the past three years, was nominated by her sister, who refers to Johnson as her hero. In August 2013, Johnson was diagnosed with Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer at age 30.

For the past three years Johnson never looked back or backed down from her battle. Johnson braved a double mastectomy, multiple weeks of radiation and a few reconstructive surgeries. During this process, Johnson has inspired many and continues to encourage others battling cancer. This Sunday, Johnson will celebrate Mother’s Day as the mother of a 6-year-old son.

The Honorary Bat Girl program was introduced in 2009 to raise additional awareness and support for the annual “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” initiative celebrated on Mother’s Day. In eight years, thousands of unique testimonials have been submitted and more than 3 million fan votes have been cast. Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer is a Major League Baseball initiative supported by MLB charitable partners Stand Up To Cancer and Susan G. Komen. This initiative raises awareness about the breast cancer cause, while also raising funds to support breast cancer research.

Cleveland Indians announce Opening Day festivities and guests

CI_041015SS-228.CR2

Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney to throw ceremonial first pitch

Operatic singer William Clarence Marshall to sing national anthem

Alumni Bill Selby, Travis Hafner, Kenny Lofton to take part in pregame ceremonies, recognizing ‘Only Here’ moments from their careers

The Cleveland Indians announced on Monday a full schedule of festivities leading up to first pitch at 4:10PM on Monday, April 4, the Tribe’s 2016 Home Opener at Progressive Field. Gates will open at 2PM.

The game, the Tribe’s 23nd Home Opener at Progressive Field, marks the 116th as a charter member of the American League, and the 24rd consecutive Home Opener sellout dating back to the team’s final year at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. This year’s game sold out in 40 minutes on February 29.

The Black Keys drummer and Akron native Patrick Carney will throw the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day against the Red Sox. Carney and Dan Auerbach formed The Black Keys in 2001, and since have won seven Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

Operatic singer William Clarence Marshall, who also calls northeast Ohio home, is set to sing the national anthem. Marshall has a decorated career, including appearances with Opera Cleveland, Akron Symphony Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra.

The Indians will honor all branches of the United States military, as members of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard will present the colors. Meanwhile, an oversized American flag will be presented by 250 employees of Progressive Insurance, the presenting partner of the club’s Opening Series.

Alumni Bill Selby, Travis Hafner and Kenny Lofton also will be on hand April 4 to celebrate some of the top “Only Here” moments in ballpark history.

Those three alumni will attend pregame ceremonies and will be recognized for “Only Here” moments at Jacobs/Progressive Field in which they played a part, including:

  • Selby’s walk-off grand slam off Mariano Rivera in 2002, Selby’s first and only career walk-off hit and grand slam, giving the Indians a 10-7 win against the Yankees.
  • Hafner’s game-winning walk-off single during the American League Division Series “bug game” in 2007, giving the Indians a 2-1 win over the Yankees and a 2-0 series lead.
  • Lofton’s catch in center field to rob B.J Surhoff of a home run on August 4, 1996, and Lofton’s game-winning run in the team’s 12-run comeback against Seattle in 2001.

The celebration will be an extension of the Tribe’s 2016 “Only Here” brand campaign, which launched today on television and radio across Northeast Ohio, and on Indians.com and social media. The Indians will celebrate moments whose impact can be best felt by experiencing games at Progressive Field, where fans can be part of the action and excitement – i.e. Corey Kluber’s 18-strikeout game last May or Yan Gomes’ grand slam last August.

The first spot of the campaign is now live on Indians.com, the Tribe’s social media channels or by clicking HERE.

Sign petition for Bob Feller to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

feller“If the game proved anything it proved that we must win this war so that we may be able to continue to play and to see baseball games, instead of learning how to do the goose step.”

-Cleveland Plain Dealer, July 8, 1942

Preparing to pitch at Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Bob Feller buttoned up his uniform. For the first time during his professional career, Feller donned a uniform that was not a Cleveland issued garment. As a member of the US Navy, Feller and a group of servicemen prepared to take on the American League All-Stars to help raise money for the war effort.

The United States All-Service team, coached by Mickey Cochrane, featured Feller, John Rigney (Navy-White Sox), John Grodzicki (Army-Cardinals), Mickey Harris (Army-Red Sox), Fred Hutchinson (Navy-Tigers), Frank Pytlak (Navy-Red Sox), Ken Silvestri (Army-Yankees), John Sturm and Morrie Arnovich (Army-Giants).

Opposing the service team was the American League All-Stars. Future Hall of Famers Hal Newhouser, Lou Boudreau, Joe Gordon, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams highlighted a star-studded roster.

The Plain Dealer reported that the event had a World Series type of atmosphere. Beginning with the 6:30 p.m. batting practice, the event featured the Fort Hayes band, Marine Corps drill, Fort Custer tank destroyer battalion and artillery outfit, parade of tanks, Great Lakes Naval Training Station band, V formation and a flag raising. The baseball game did not even start until 9 p.m.

The ballpark was dolled up in red, white and blue bunting and flags of the United Nations were draped from the upper deck. Photos of Douglas MacArthur were affixed to the walls at the base of the stands. A crowd of 62,094 turned out to see Feller and the Servicemen drop a 5-0 decision to the All-Stars. Feller pitched into the second inning before leaving, down 3-0. Fans understood that perhaps Feller didn’t have his best stuff due to his Navy duties taking precedent of his time. Famed Plain Dealer writer, Gordon Cobbledick wrote it this way:

“American League pitching was too sharp for batting eyes dulled by months of devotion to another task. American League bats were too potent for pitching arms grown rusty in the service of a greater cause than baseball. This was the story of the United States Service-American League All-Star game at the stadium last night before one of the greatest crowds of Cleveland sports history.”

Interestingly enough, even during an unofficial game such as this one, fans at Cleveland Municipal Stadium booed the Yankees’ star Joe DiMiaggio. He was quoted saying, “I can’t understand it. I don’t know of anything I’ve done to deserve it.”

Underlying the spectacle was the benefit of the game. For every ticket sold, $1 in War Stamps was included. The event raised between $130,000 and $150,000 for the war effort.

Bob Feller used his celebrity in the best way he could during the early part of the war. This game is just one reason why we believe Bob Feller deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Please help and sign the petition.

Trevor Bauer mans @Indians during Friday’s games — and #BauerTakeover is a hit

CI_031315-129.CR2

The @indians account had a familiar face running the show as the Tribe played split-squad games in Goodyear and Mesa on Friday afternoon. Tribe pitcher Trevor Bauer – known on Twitter as @BauerOutage – spent the afternoon in the press box live tweeting happenings from both games, having a little fun at his teammates expense and answering questions from fans on Twitter.

Fans followed along using #BauerTakeover and Bauer even gave away a few tickets to a game back in Cleveland by asking fans to finish lyrics from one of his original songs.

He was so entertaining that by the end of the game, @Indians followers were requesting he Tweet all the games.  Lucky for us – and our job security – he is needed more on the mound, but we hope he’ll come back and join us for another #BauerTakeover.
