Tonight, the Indians will honor Cleveland Indians super fan and bleacher percussionist extraordinaire, John Adams. After 40 years of supplying the rhythm to virtually every Indians rally and pulse pounding moment by beating away on his drum, the Indians will give Adams a tribute of epic proportions tonight. Literally 40 years to the day since he first began his tenure as the Indians unofficial drummer, he will be honored for his years of dedication through good times and through bad. Today’s edition of Clevelinks is dedicated to John Adams.
