The Indians announced today that Saturday’s Green Awareness Day game will include more than just a recycled hat giveaway. The hats are made of old plastic bottles (sounds comfy) and will go to all fans with a full game ticket. I say full game ticket for a reason.
The Tribe is trying to capitalize on game 1 of Cleveland’s playoff series with the Bulls. That game starts at 3:00ish, while the Indians are set for a 4:10 first pitch. Ticket holders for game one of the playoffs will be allowed to purchase special $5 tickets to see the remainder of the Indians game after the Cavs game has finished. Take your playoff ticket to Gate A and get your partial game Indians ticket for the bleachers or upper deck seat. They will also be selling a hot dog/beer $8 combo after the Cavs game is finished, provided it ends before last call I’m sure.
I suppose you can’t blame the Indians for trying to take advantage of the crowd that is already there. I do wonder if a $5 ticket is worth it if the game is in say the bottom of the 7th inning and it is seemingly out of reach. The Tribe does play the White Sox, so you can bring your Beat Chicago signs into ballpark as well. Release the Shaqken signs may seem a bit strange at a Tribe game however.
