Indians unveil events for Monday April 1 Opening Day game

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY INDIANS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

Indians Alum and 1994 Opening Day hero Wayne Kirby to toss Ceremonial First Pitch to Tribe Hall of Famer Sandy Alomar; Team to honor Frank Robinson with Opening Day patch; 2018 American League Central Division Pennant to be unveiled

 

Cleveland, OH — The Cleveland Indians today announced a full slate of festivities leading up to the Home Opener first pitch at 4:10PM on Monday, April 1 at Progressive Field. All gates open at 2PM.

The game, the Tribe’s 26th Home Opener at Progressive Field, marks the 119th as a charter member of the American League, and the 27th consecutive Home Opener sellout dating back to the team’s final year at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. The 2019 Home Opener also officially commences the sixth season in which Cleveland will be home to Major League Baseball’s Midsummer Classic.

The Indians will honor the 25th Anniversary of the ballpark as alum Wayne Kirby will throw the ceremonial first pitch to Indians Hall of Famer Sandy Alomar (first Indians hit at Jacobs Field). On Opening Day 1994, Kirby’s 11th-inning, two-out single scored Eddie Murray to lift the Tribe over the Mariners, 4-3.

There will be a pregame ceremony to celebrate the 2018 American League Central Division Championship team, during which the AL Central Division Pennant will be unveiled for a third straight year.

The team will pay tribute to Hall of Famer and player-manager Frank Robinson with #20 patches on its Opening Day uniforms to honor his milestone of becoming the first African-American manager in MLB history on Opening Day 1975. Robinson went on to hit a solo home run in his first at-bat as player-manager at Municipal Stadium.

Retired Navy Petty Officer, 1st Class Generald Wilson will perform the National Anthem. The team will honor all esteemed branches of the United States military, as members of the United States Marines, Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force will present the colors. Around 250 employees from Progressive, the presenting partner of the club’s Opening Series, will unveil a giant American flag from 50 Star Productions.

Miller, 29, spent the 2019 exhibition season with the Los Angeles Dodgers after signing with LA on February 27. He batted .385 (10-for-26) with 2 homers and 3 RBI in 12 games in Cactus League play before being released on March 21.

In his first season with the Rays (2016), the Orlando, FL native collected a career-high 29 doubles, 30 homers and 81 RBI in 152 games. Over his career, he has appeared at all the defensive positions with the exception of pitcher and catcher, most often at short stop (375 G) and second base (156 G).

Blue Jackets broadcaster Bill Davidge to retire; heartfelt message to fans

(COURTESY COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS COMMUNICATIONS)

 

Bill Davidge

A MESSAGE FROM BILL DAVIDGE

For the past 20 years I have had the pleasure and privilege of being a Columbus Blue Jacket.  In 1999, I joined the team as a scout.  In 2000, I embarked on a broadcasting career that has spanned the 19 years since on radio and FOX Sports Ohio.  And while my time here has been “as good as it gets” and I’ve loved every minute of it, I have informed the club and network that the current season will be my last.  I’ve decided to retire.

 

This is something I have thought about for quite a while and it just feels like the time is right.  Most of you are aware of the cancer fight I’ve waged over the past few years and while I feel great, I want to continue to focus on my health and my family, spend more time at our place in Florida and play more golf!

 

I’ve spent most of my adult life working in and around the great game of hockey and will forever be grateful to the many people I have met and lifelong friends I’ve made along the way.  I am truly blessed and fulfilled.  While the number of people I want to thank is too high to list here, I do want to thank my broadcast partners George Matthews, Jeff Rimer and Brian Giesenschlag, the fine folks at FOX Sports Ohio, 97.1 The Fan, CD102.5 and all the coaches, players, general managers and wonderful people in the game that I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years.  I also want to thank my family and friends for their love, support and inspiration during this journey and the best fans in hockey, The 5th Line, many of whom have become dear friends.

 

Finally, I’d like to thank the McConnell family and all my fellow Blue Jackets for allowing me to “live the dream” and be part of this wonderful organization for the past two decades.  While I am looking forward to retirement, I also look forward to continuing to be a part of the CBJ family and helping to grow the game I love in our community.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bill Davidge
