Can’t get to Spring Training in Arizona this coming winter spring? Well, if you live in Central Ohio (that’s me!) and have nothing going on next March 30th, the Tribe and Columbus Clippers (well, err, they’re *techincally* the Tribe too, kinda) invite you to Huntington Park for an intra-squad scrimmage in the intimate confines.
In the context of releasing their 2011 schedule today, the Clippers also announced:
The Columbus Clippers, reigning International League Governors’ Cup Champions and also Triple-A National Champions will play an exhibition game on Wednesday March 30 against their parent team, the Cleveland Indians at 1:05 pm. It will be the first time the two teams have played in Columbus as [the Clippers] start the third year of [their] affiliation with the Tribe, an affiliation which was recently extended through the 2014 season. Box Seats will be included in full season and 35 game season ticket packages and will not be available for early sale. All reserved seats will be $20, general admission will be $10 and all will go on sale November 12, 2010.
Crap. I only have the 20-game package. Nevertheless, it’s a great opportunity to see the (presumably) Opening-Day Tribe roster in a small-park setting, playing against guys we already know and love from the organization.
The biggest question I have is: who do I root for in this game?
