Indians to honor Larry Doby Saturday

The Cleveland Indians will unveil the new Larry Doby statue at 4:45PM at Progressive Field’s Right Field Gate.  All fans are welcome to attend and should be in the area by 4:30PM.

Doby, who played with the Tribe from 1947-1955 and in 1959, was the first African-American to play in the American League, just months after Jackie Robinson debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Doby played a 12-year career – earning All-Star honors seven times.

Speakers at the ceremony include:

  • Paul Dolan, Indians Owner and Chairman
  • Jim “Mudcat” Grant, former Doby teammate and friend
  • Larry Doby Jr., son of Larry Doby Sr.

The Indians will also provide a replica Doby statue to 12,500 fans courtesy of KeyBank, and fans at Saturday’s game will enjoy post-game fireworks presented by Pierre’s Ice Cream Co.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love took the Internet by storm on Monday when his ESPN The Magazine “Body” issue photo shoot went viral. What can we say? Guy looks good.

However, there’s another Clevelander who looks just as good, if not better, without his clothes on — Slider.

So we put Slider through his own “Body” issue photo shoot, hoping ESPN calls us next year.

Cleveland Indians Charities receives Boys and Girls Clubs Corporate Volunteer of the Year Award

CI_121014-040.JPG

Cleveland Indians Charities has been named the 2015 Corporate Volunteer of the Year by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland.

Drs. Rebecca Robbins and James Anderson also were recognized; CIC and that duo teamed up with a variety of dental health professionals in July to provide free dental care to over 350 Boys & Girls Clubs members at the Terrace Club at Progressive Field.

The clubs are one of the biggest beneficiaries of CIC, recipients of financial, in-kind and volunteer efforts. The clubs have received nearly $3 million from CIC, including a gift of $1 million in 2012. In 2014, that included support for youth programs including:

  • SMART (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) Girls: A program designed to encourage healthy lifestyles for adolescent girls.
  • SPARK: An initiative that helps underperforming first-, second- and third-graders improve reading skills.
  • Passport to Manhood: A program concentrating on specific aspects of character and manhood.

Also honored at Friday morning’s breakfast at the Boys and Girls Clubs’ Broadway club was Timmesha Jackson, the 2015 Cleveland Indians Charities Youth of the Year. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to a member’s family, school, community and Boys & Girls Club, as well as personal challenges and obstacles overcome.

Timmesha will attend New College of Florida in the fall to study Marine Science. She’ll receive a $5,000 scholarship from the Indians.
