If you thought that 2013 was one crazy year in the world of Cleveland Sports, 2014 once again proved that there is rarely a dull moment. There were good times and bad, hirings and firings, wins and losses, homecomings and award winners. As the year comes to a close, like we have done the last six
The Cleveland Indians have announced details for Tribe Fest 2015, to be held at Progressive Field on January 24 and 25.

Hi, loyal WFNY readers. Have you missed me? Last we talked, I was in Idaho Falls, making my way gradually to my new home here in Eugene, Oregon. When you read this, I’ll still be sleeping (Pacific Coast time!) just before my fourth day of MBA classes. It’s certainly been information overload. The two weeks
“When’s the schedule coming out?” This was a text I received every few days since LeBron’s return to the Cavaliers. For weeks and weeks, many have been on edge. No official announcement came at first – the NBA had been said to want to delay the release to closer to mid-August. Finally, there was news.
Your browser does not support iframes. By now, you’ve seen updates and renderings of the changes happening at Progressive Field. Fewer seats, more social areas, more ties to downtown neighborhoods and a two-story, indoor-outdoor bar. But have you heard Tom Hamilton discuss them? Now you have.

Are Bob Feller and Jim Thome about to have some company? It appears that the Cleveland Indians have some plans that may include a few more supersized bronze ghosts throughout the confines of Progressive Field. @AZFromCleveland stay tuned… — Mark Shapiro (@MarkShapiro) August 2, 2014 Since the plans were put in place in 2011 for
The Cleveland Indians were in the postseason a year ago and are seeing attendance numbers continue to fall on a year-over-year basis. Despite two bouts of October baseball in the last seven seasons, they’re certain to finish outside baseball’s top 20 in attendance for the 12th consecutive year. Alas, the team is taking their use of
This is not an article about attendance at Indians games. Not really, anyway. Much has been made about attendance in Cleveland the past few years. A franchise that retired No.455 for THE FANS has cobwebs on its turnstiles. As an alleged “Tribe Town” began regularly pulling in less than 10,000 patrons per game, blame was
Say what you want about the product on the field over the last week or so, but the Cleveland Indians are undoubtedly listening to their fans. In an effort to better connect with fans at Progressive Field, the team, in partnership with Verizon Wireless, has announced a roll-out of what their referring to as new

With the 20-year anniversary of Jacobs/Progressive Field almost upon us, we will be taking a look at top-fives in each aspect of the Indians on the field.

No matter what, it’s disappointing. That’s a fair statement for any diehard fan of a competing team like the 2013 Cleveland Indians. You see, these Indians aren’t like the contending teams of the ‘90s for one obvious, over-reported and obnoxious fact: Attendance.
