I’d figure I’d try something different for this post. Usually all I talk about is news or issues involved with sports. Today, I bring a strike of good cheer. This offseason, the Cleveland Indians are holding an event called “Snow Days” on November 26th, at Progressive Field.
What does this have to do with sports?
It is a business decision to get people interested about the Indians, who have the Triple-A Champions in the Columbus Clippers. It’s a business decision to get the fans to see the park differently. It’s for the people of Cleveland. It’s for the people.
This project, which is taking some time to get all the equipment in, will be around for the Holiday season. There will be a walking path surrounded by winter lights. There will be a ten-lane snow tubing, beginning from the bleachers and ending near the infield. There is also a kids play place named “Slider’s Snow Zone”, as well as a home run porch where food and beverages are served, and a frozen mile to skate.
All attendees will need to fill out a waiver before entering Snow Days, for safety reasons.
There will be nine days that are not available to the General Public, but the rest of the days will be available for everyone. Tickets will be available to the general public today (Monday, November 15th) and the event will happen until January. Yes, Snow Days will go on during Christmas and New Years. For the full schedule, give this link a try.
I think this is a really nice way to give back to Cleveland and get more people interested in going to the ballpark in the future. Like I previously mentioned, there is something for everyone. Personally, I’d love to go but that is a trek from Southwestern Ohio to Cleveland. We’ll see though, as I wouldn’t mind getting the chance to skate in the infield or sled down from the bleachers to the outfield.
I recommend anyone who can make it to have fun at the ballpark in November.
Next post will be about something going on in Reds Country. No, there isn’t going to be a super slide from the View Level seats into the dugouts, but this is becoming a strong tradition in Cincinnati. I think you Reds fans already know what I’m talking about.
Until next time,
