The Cleveland Indians family lost a beloved member during the offseason with the passing of player and broadcaster Herb Score. Those too young to remember the pitching prowess of Score the player certainly will remember his Indians broadcasts on both the TV (1964-1967) and the radio (1968-1997).
His announcing style and knowledge and love of the game made him a beloved fan favorite. The 'Voice of the Indians' was the longest tenured broadcaster in Indians history. Herb retired after the 1997 World Series and was inducted into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame in 2006.
'Value' is the key word for the fan experience during the 2009 Cleveland Indians season at Progressive Field.
For example, you can get a Buy One Get One season ticket package in the View Seats that will make you think twice about being able to afford season tickets. Buy a season ticket for $2100 and get another season ticket for free. Grab some pals and split the season. Each ticket will only cost about $13! That's lower than the tickets cost when the ballpark opened in 1994.
Other people (especially kids) don't need the huge portion sizes (and large prices!) of some items. So in 2009 you will be able to get some smaller portion items at a correspondingly lower price.
The Cleveland Indians are also partnering with the Cleveland Clinic to provide healthy food options as well.
One of my favorites will be the bobblehead of Wild Thing Ricky Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the movie Major League. And yes, Bob Uecker will be in town that night! Hopefully the Brewers pitchers will be "just a bit outside" all night
