Tribe Fest is On Deck
The Cleveland Indians made an announcement on Wednesday. Unfortunately, it had nothing to do with them acquiring a player. So to those of you who are still wondering about Brett Anderson, sorry about your luck. The Indians did, however, announce their plans for their second annual Tribe Fest. Last year’s first ever Tribe Fest was a smashing success and this year’s promises to be even bigger and better. The announcement leads off today’s edition of Clevelinks.
- The Indians announced the tentative plans for the second annual Tribe Fest. In addition to detailing new features and attractions for this year’s celebration, the Indians also provided the tentative list of players who will be in attendance. Among the notable players who plan to be there include Carlos Santana, Newly acquired David Murphy, and Wahoo’s on First favorite Trevor Bauer. Full details can be found here.
- Additional details were also provided for Tribe Fest by Indians beat writer Paul Hoynes. You can find his write up here.
- More reports are beginning to turn up around the internet about Carlos Santana possibly moving to third base. Next up, MLB.com.
- Let’s hear it for Lonnie! Lonnie Soloff that is. On Tuesday, the Indians announced that Soloff would be taking over the role of senior director of medical services. With Soloff taking the expanded role, James Quinlan will take over as the Indians head athletic trainer.
- From The Atlantic, if the Indians changed their name and logo it would put pressure on the Washington Redskins to do the same thing… allegedly. While this makes sense in theory, I doubt Daniel Snyder could care less about what we are doing in Cleveland.
