Party At Napoli’s T-shirts coming soon to Cleveland Indians Team Shop


They’re arriving soon, and they’ll be available for purchase.

What is that we’re referring to? You guessed it. Your own personal “Party At Napoli’s” T-shirt.


You may have seen Mike Napoli wearing the shirt in a post-game interview with Andre Knott following his walk-off sac fly against the Kansas City Royals on June 2.

You may have even heard Mike mutter to Andre: “Party at Napoli’s? Let’s do it!”

So where did this all come from?

It all began with #IndiansTwitter user @HipsterTito. He and friends had plans to participate in our #TribeLive section that night, and had the idea to make a sign to celebrate Mike’s achievements — a slogan which quickly caught on.


It caught on so well, that we delivered Mike the makeshift version of the shirt (seen in the photo with Andre above), and well, he loved it.

He even commented how he wanted everybody wearing them, so we had the idea: Why not create “Party At Napoli’s” shirts for all fans to enjoy? We asked Mike his thoughts, and he was all for it.

All for it indeed, on one condition — he requested a portion of all proceeds go to Cleveland Clinic Children’s.

A party for the kids? That’s a party everyone should attend!

#AskAnderson Twitter highlights

Cody Anderson has come up to the Indians, and tuned heads with his amazing stuff and his unique character. On Thursday morning, just a few days after shutting down the Rays, we hosted an #AskAnderson segment on Twitter. Fans could ask Cody anything they wanted and he really enjoyed it. Here are a few highlighted tweets:

Question: Who was your favorite sports team growing up?

Question: What’s your pregame ritual?

Question: How do you keep your beard so well groomed?

Question: Who is the biggest jokester on the team?

Question: What kind of toothpaste do you use?

Question: What MLB city are you most looking forward to traveling to?

Question: Sexier Cody beard — you or Allen?

Presenting: Indians Mean Tweets

The Cleveland Indians have received a lot of national attention lately (read about it here), but that hasn’t stopped fans from being slightly critical. Indians players, staff and some special guests decided to fire back to the negative Twitter comments. Their reactions do not disappoint.

(By the way, we still don’t know what JIXES are…)

Carlos Santana — aka @TheRealSlamtana — at it again on Twitter


Carlos Santana has had a pretty good 2014: After a slow start with the Tribe, he rebounded to become the first Indians switch hitter with 25 or more homers and 100 or more walks in the same season, finishing with 27 homers and 113 walks. (He led MLB in free passes.)

Then he played with the MLB All-Stars in the Japan Series.

In between, he joined Twitter, and Tribe fans have benefited since — Waiting for Next Yearhas called him Cleveland’s most engaging Twitter personality. He’s tweeted out fun (and sometimes weird) pictures, but most often just answered fans’ questions, pulling back the curtain a little on what it’s like to be a big-leaguer.

He did that again on Monday night — a sampling:

Before becoming #CyKluber, Corey Kluber chats w/fans on Twitter


Tribe pitcher Corey Kluber took an hour or so to chat with fans on Twitter last Wednesday, about four hours before being named the 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner.

Questions and answers ranged from serious:

… to fun:

Make sure you’re following Corey (@CKluber) to know more about the Cy Young winner!

New to Twitter, Carlos Santana chats up Tribe fans


Tribe first baseman Carlos Santana joined Twitter on Sept. 8, and since then, has shown an entertaining and engaging side with Tribe fans, as the below Tweets show:

Santana told us he’s enjoying himself so far, and enjoys interacting with Tribe fans.

Make sure you follow Carlos on Twitter, and chime in — he may answer your question!

Tweet using #Whiff + @Indians to help Cleveland’s kids

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Major League Baseball and Head & Shoulders are teaming up for another “Season of the #Whiff” and we want you to get involved!

What is a whiff?

A whiff is the “swoosh” of the bat hitting nothing but air. Think of a terrible miss in a backyard game of whiffle ball, and you’ll hear a whiff.

While whiffs may be bad news for a hitter, whiffs are wonderful for a pitching staff — and now they could help kids in the Cleveland area get to play the game we all know and love. The MLB clubs with the highest whiff totals each month will earn funding for their local RBI program from Head & Shoulders!

What is the RBI program?

The Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program was designed by Major League Baseball to increase participation and interest in baseball and softball among underserved youth.

Cleveland Indians Charities (CIC) and the Cleveland Baseball Federation team up to operate the local RBI and Rookie League programs that provide youth team-oriented activities while challenging them academically and physically. Kids are also required to attend educational seminars that stress positive social interaction, health issues, and the importance of staying in school. More than 4,500 Cleveland-area boys and girls participate in RBI and Rookie League each year.

How can I help?

Simply by including “#WHIFF + @Indians” in your tweets (or retweeting others who do) you could help raise thousands of dollars for Cleveland area kids! You can include “#Whiff + @Indians” in up to 27 tweets per day (per account) to count toward the Tribe’s whiff total.

The team with the highest total of #Whiff tweets each month will earn thousands of dollars for their local RBI chapter! Here’s the breakdown of dollar distribution for whiff leaders each month, April through September:

  • 1st Place: $10,000
  • 2nd Place: $7,500
  • 3rd Place: $7,500
  • 4th Place: $5,000
  • 5th Place: $5,000
  • 6th Place: $2,500
  • 7th Place: $2,500

Indians fan Alexandria Justice a finalist for MLB Fan Cave

Indians fan and MLB Fan Cave finalist Alexandria Justice (left) heads to Goodyear this week.

The Tribe officially has a fan flying out to Spring Training to compete for a spot in the MLB Fan Cave! Alexandria Justice was selected as a Top 30 finalist late on Tuesday and will arrive in Goodyear on Monday. TribeVibe caught up with Alex before she heads to Arizona to demonstrate why she is the ultimate baseball fan.

TribeVibe: What was your reaction when you found out you made the Top 30?

Alexandria Justice: Just like for the top 50, I’m not afraid to admit that I cried like a baby. Waiting for them to announce the top 30 after the voting closed at 5 p.m. was almost the death of me. I swear I didn’t blink for minutes at a time while staring at my computer screen and started to get lightheaded from holding my breath. Finally, I refreshed the page for the millionth time and there I was, in the top 30. My best friend was waiting outside of my room (I wanted to be alone, just in case) so when I screamed, “OH MY GOD, I LOVE EVERYONE IN THE WORLD!” she got the hint that it was safe to come in. She picked me up, spun me around, and we freaked out for the next five minutes. Once again, it was hard to believe that I wasn’t dreaming.



Major League Baseball passed along the following press release earlier today; good news all around for the health of our game. -TribeVibe

Giants Win, Sandoval’s Historic Night Generate Second-Most
Social Media Comments in Postseason History

Kung Fu Panda had fans buzzing during Game One of the World Series. Last night’s lopsided win by the Giants in Game One — which featured an historic three home run performance by Pablo Sandoval — generated 813,000 social media comments, making it the second-most talked-about game on social media in Postseason history, trailing only the classic Game Six of the 2011 World Series.

The World Series game dominated the social media conversation last night, as the game generated more than five times as many public Facebook and Twitter comments as the next highest-ranking show on television (+412%), and +79% more comments than the next nine most talked about shows on television Wednesday, according to data from Bluefin Labs. On television, the World Series led FOX to an easy win in prime time over all other competition and was the highest-rated Wednesday night on FOX since the American Idol finale in May.

Sandoval’s three home runs sparked social media’s biggest buzz, as 163,881 comments featured the words Pablo, Sandoval or Panda, representing 20.2% of all conversations around the game. #WorldSeries was by far the most widely-used hashtag of the night, featured in 15% of all comments.

The World Series also elicited tweets yesterday from celebrity baseball fans including Jeff Daniels, Kid Rock, Colin Hanks, Eminem, Larry King, Kevin Pollack, MC Hammer, Kerri Walsh and Rob Schneider, as well as current MLB players Matt Kemp, Jeremy Guthrie, Josh Reddick, Jimmy Rollins, Joba Chamberlain, Elvis Andrus and Ian Desmond, among many others.

Coverage of Game Two of the World Series begins tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
