What is your favorite Tribe memory? Where were you and why does it stand out?
My favorite Tribe memory is when Tony Pena hit the walk-off home run with two outs in the 13th inning to win Game 1 of the 1995 American League Division Series versus the Red Sox. It gave me goosebumps as a fan, as it was the Indians’ first postseason win since the clinching Game 6 in the 1948 World Series. I was watching the game with my dad and stepmom. It was a school night so it was even more special to get to stay up late that night to witness the extra-inning heroics.
Who is your favorite Indians player of all time, and why?
My favorite Indians player of all time is Roberto Alomar, because I was a second baseman growing up and viewed him as an idol. Well, he was the best second baseman of his era, and I enjoyed every moment of his three seasons with the Tribe. I admired him so much that I went to Toronto in July 2011 to see the Blue Jays retire their first number, Roberto Alomar’s No. 12, one week after Alomar became the first Hall of Famer to be inducted as a Blue Jay.
There are two Indians fans as hopefuls for the Fan Cave. Why should fans vote for you? What makes you a great representative of the Cleveland Indians?
Fans should vote for me because I’m a fellow Clevelander and I’m a loyal, lifelong Indians fan. It would be a dream of an opportunity to be in the MLB Fan Cave and to represent the city of Cleveland and the Cleveland Indians.
