Cleveland Indians renovate baseball fields in Hough

The Cleveland Indians hosted the fourth annual Fields for the Future project on Thursday, May 10 at Thurgood Marshall Recreation on Cleveland's East Side.

Along with Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan and his wife Karen, Indians catcher Yan Gomes and his wife Jenna, who made a financial donation to support the project, City of Cleveland Assitant Director of Public Works Kim Johnson, City of Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones, State Representative Stephanie Howse, and staff from U.S. Representative Marcia Fudge's office were on hand to unveil renovations. Local youth then played a game on the newly renovated field.

The Fields for the Future program began in 2015 at Luke Easter Park on Cleveland's East Side. In 2016, a field was renovated at Gunning Park and in 2017, a field was renovated at Halloran Park. According to the City of Cleveland, field usage improved tremendously after the renovations, with the number of games played at the field growing four-fold.

Superman wasn’t born on Krypton. He was born in Cleveland.

More precisely he was born at 10622 Kimberly Ave. in Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood.

While attending Glenville High School in Cleveland in early 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story, illustrated by his friend and classmate Joe Shuster, titled “The Reign of the Superman”, which Siegel self-published in his fanzine, Science Fiction #3. Originally Superman was a villain but in June 1933 Siegel developed a new character, also named Superman, but now a heroic character.

“This is the house where Superman was born,” reads the sign hanging on the fence in front of 10622 Kimberly Ave. It’s a private home.

GE Nela Park Christmas Light Display 2015

Many of you may remember driving through the GE Nela Park campus on Noble Road in East Cleveland as a kid and being mesmerized by the amazing Christmas lighting display. While you haven't been able to drive through Nela Park for many years you can see the brilliant display along Noble Road. If you drive, be prepared for cars moving very slowly - and even stopping - as they ooh and aahh at the display. A better option is to pull into the Nela Park main road and park in one of the Visitor spots and walk along the display route.

It is another Cleveland treasure and should be visited in person. View some photos of the 2015 display to whet your appetite.

Sisters Under Sail - Women Sailors

Don't think that Tall Ships and sailing are just for the guys.

Dawn Santamaria and her all female crew, the only all-female crew of the Tall Ships, sail the tall ship Unicorn. Dawn saw the confidence and empowerment that her 4 daughters gained from sailing on the 110-foot tall ship so she created the program to help young women grow.
