Own a piece of Progressive Field history — ballpark turnstiles

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You can own a piece of Progressive Field history, as a limited number of the ballpark’s turnstiles are available for purchase!

The turnstiles have been used for 20 years, and are a must-have for any hardcore Indians fan – and would be a perfect addition to any Man Cave.

They’ve been authenticated by Major League Baseball and are available by calling or visiting the Progressive Field Team Shop at 216-420-HITS.

Saturday recap: Photos, plus notes on Carrasco, Santana, Brantley

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Indians moved to 3-1 through the first 4 games of this 5-game homestand against Arizona (1-1) and Baltimore (2-0, + 1 game), improving to 62-60 and two games over the .500 mark for the first time since August 4 (57-55)…marks Cleveland’s 9th shutout of the season and first shutout since a 3-0 win at New York-AL on August 9…the Indians are now 9-5 to begin the month of August and have won 5 of their last 6 since dropping 4-straight from 8/5-8/8…the win gives the Indians a 17-12 record vs. teams from the AL-East this season, making this the 7th time in the last 11 seasons that the Indians have gone .500-or-better vs. the AL-East since 2004…the Indians have 4 remaining games vs. the AL-East this season (1 vs. BAL and 3 vs. TB).

More notes:


  • Carrasco worked 7.0 scoreless innings and picked up his fifth win of the season and second win as a starter this year (W, 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R-ER, 0 BB, 5 SO, 0 HR, 79 pitches/57 strikes)…after going 0-3 with a 6.95 ERA (17 ER/22.0 IP) through his first 4 starts of the season, Carrasco has gone 2-0 through 2 starts (12.0 scoreless innings) since transitioning back into the starter role…the last time Carrasco worked 5.0 scoreless innings in
    back-to-back outings was on June 7-June 13, 2011 (15.1 IP)…the last time Carrasco worked at least 7.0 innings was when he did not earn a decision, despite going 7.1 innings in a 2-1 loss vs. Kansas City on June 17, 2013…the last time he worked at least 7.0 scoreless innings was when he earned a 1-0 win at New York-AL on June 13, 2011.
  • Carrasco improves to 4-0 with a 1.84 ERA (6 ER/29.1 IP) in 10 appearances/3 starts vs. American League East opponents this season…Over the Tribe’s last 6 games dating back to August 9, Cleveland’s starting rotation has posted a 0.69 ERA (3 ER/39.0 IP).


  • Delivered his 21st home run of the season, a 3-run shot to center field that put the Indians on the board 3-0 in the first inning…the home run marked Santana’s 92nd career homer, tying him with Sandy Alomar for 28th-most home runs in Indians history…with Santana’s first-inning home run, the Indians last 6 runs have come courtesy of the home run ball…Santana’s 92 career home runs rank 20th in the American League since 2010…Santana finished the game 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and 3 RBI.


  • Registered his 18th home run of the season, coming as a 2-run homer to right field in the fifth inning and giving the Indians a 6-0 lead…Brantley’s 2 RBI give him 80 RBI on the season as he becomes the only player in the American League with a batting average over .300, 18-or-more home runs, 10-or-more stolen bases and at least 80 RBI this season.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, Rock N’ Blast’s rep precedes it … but by all accounts, the 2014 version got off to a rocking start on Friday night; this year’s theme is Tour of Rock and Cleveland band Welshly Arms performed before the show.

Remember: Rock N Blast is back on Saturday at Progressive Field as the Indians take on old friend Ubaldo Jimenez and the Orioles. Here are some Tribe fans’ pictures from the show!

Get to Know: Indians outfielder Zach Walters


Lots of new faces in the Tribe clubhouse these days, so we’re going to help you get to know some of the guys in a new “Get To Know” feature. We’ll ask about baseball stuff, non-baseball stuff and more.

First up – Zach Walters, who came over in the Asdrubal Cabrera trade and made a big splash at Columbus right away, including a two-homer game. Walters notched his first big-league hit as a member of the Indians organization on Wednesday.

Name: Zach Walters

Position: Outfielder

Born: Cheyenne, Wyo. (fun fact – there have been 14 big-leaguers born in Wyoming, including Walters)

College/school: University of San Diego

How acquired: Via trade with Washington on July 31, in exchange for Asdrubal Cabrera

Best memory in an Indians uniform?: Has to be the Aviles, Kipnis and Chisenhall tarp slide.

Best slip and slider: Has to be Mikey – he was the most enthusiastic for sure.

Other sports played?: Football and basketball

Favorite visiting city/ballpark?: I like both New York ballparks (Citi Field and Yankee Stadium)

Favorite non-baseball activity?: Ping pong, for sure (we asked him he’d tried out the table near the clubhouse featured in this video of the Sklar brothers vs. Joe Smith/Tony Sipp, but he hasn’t yet)

Favorite place to visit/restaurant in Cleveland?: I have no idea yet …

Favorite movie?: “The Count of Monte Cristo”/

Favorite TV show: I’m a big car guy, so I like “Overhaulin’” and anything dealing with cars (

Favorite non-baseball teams?: I’m definitely a Manziel and LeBron fan; also the actual USC Trojans – not South Carolina, the real USC

Favorite band/music artist?: Kings of Leon

Favorite Twitter account you follow?: @ughposts

Zach Walters notched his first hit as an Indian, and followed with your average first career walk-off to give the Indians a 3-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

As always, our fantastic photographers got it all.

Photo Gallery: Rain delay? Slip and slide.

Seems like Jason Kipnis, Mike Aviles and Lonnie Chisenhall had some pent-up energy after a long rain delay and ultimate postponement on Tuesday night. This was the result.
