“It’s exciting for us an organization, for our staff and our fans,” said Indians President and General Manager Randy Lewandowski. “It’s something that we’ll really carry with pride throughout the offseason.”
The Tribe have either led Minor League Baseball in attendance or set franchise attendance records in each of the past five seasons. Last week the organization announced a record donation of $49,304 through its specialty jersey auctions. The team wore seven different themed jerseys with proceeds going to six nonprofits.
“We genuinely care about our fans, and really with every decision we make the fans come to the forefront,” said Lewandowski. “Whatever that might be, we want to make sure that the fans stay top-of-mind with everything that we do.”
