Cleveland, OH— The Cleveland Indians will play host to a celebrity bartending event to benefit VeloSano following the Tribe and Tigers Noon game on Wednesday, June 24.

Fans are encouraged to attend the Noon game vs. the Tigers and stay post-game to support the cause, with tips and 20% of proceeds going directly to VeloSano.  The Indians will have a silent auction available to raise additional money. Snack items such as nachos and peanuts will also be available for purchase.

Fans not able to attend the game are still invited without a game ticket to attend the event and enter Progressive Field at the Right Field Gate near the New Era Team Shop off East 9th St. 30 minutes following last out of the game. The event is expected to conclude 3.5 hours (approx. 6:30pm) following the last out.

The Indians partnered once again with Cleveland Clinic to support VeloSano, an annual charity bike ride event, held this summer July 17-19 in Cleveland. The Indians will also field a team of nearly 60 riders, including Indians Chairman and CEO Paul Dolan and other members of the Indians front office.

VeloSano, Latin for “swift cure,” is a major community fundraising initiative, where 100% of dollars raised by VeloSano participants directly benefits cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. At its core, it’s a cycling event where riders commit to raise a pre-determined dollar amount by requesting support from personal contacts.

A night after being beaten 17-0, the Tribe bounced back with some clutch hitting and some rain-induced, stellar work out of the bullpen in a 4-3 win.

The bullpen pitched 4.1 scoreless, including a rare fifth- and sixth-inning appearance from Cody Allen.

It all worked though — the Tribe took two of three from the Cubs in this rain-shortened, two-city series.

Relievers pay forward recent ransom note surrounding Brandon Moss’ 100th home run ball

Cleveland Indians outfielder Brandon Moss hit his 100th home run on June 2 in Kansas City. His teammates held it for ransom.

A week later, Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, used the ball in the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference, and told the audience he’d pay off the ransom.

On Wednesday, the Tribe’s relievers got the ransom — but had one more surprise in store: The group purchased and donated a dozen iPads to the Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland; the iPads will be used in the club’s Learning Center.

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!
