A look back at a nostalgic promotion from the 2003 Cleveland Indians.
The Indians have benefited from the player development of hitters with high contact rate who have developed power. David Wallace discusses Greg Allen and Yandy Diaz who might be the next in line.
Forty-plus came out to our annual event at Canal Park last night. As always the Aeros were gracious hosts, though for the first time since we’ve been getting together (our sixth year) the Aeros did not win on WFNY night. Good times were still had. As always Jon Cole was there to document the evening
It’s back. For the fifth year, WFNY and the Akron Aeros are hosting a Cleveland Sports Blog get together at Canal Park. Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 11th. As always, we have picked a ‘Thirsty Thursday’ night at the game, meaning select cold beverages (aka cheap beer and soda) are just $1.00. These events
Everyone knows the clichés about first impressions. They last a lifetime, the first few seconds define a relationship, etc. But has anyone heard about using bubbles to make a second first impression? Bubbles were the item of choice for the new-look, “new ballgame” Akron Aeros on their Opening Day game on Thursday night. The glitz
Disclaimer: I worked for the Akron Aeros in various media capacities from 2008-2010. I maintained many close relationships with my former colleagues. This November, two candidates are hoping for your votes in the polls as they strive to change the American political scene. More likely, however, Ohioans and especially Northeast Ohio sports fans have been
Another great night at Canal Park, thanks to our hosts the Aeros and some terrific company! The Aeros won 6-0 as Matt Packer shut down the Altoona line-up. The big blow for Akron was a Beau Mills 3-run home run. But as always, the game was somewhat secondary to the company for this one.
Craig gave you the details for our annual trip to Canal Park in Akron. In case you missed it, Tuesday, July 19th is the date. Last year we had just under 50 total people show up, including writers from Cleveland Frowns, Cleveland Scene, Stepien Rules, Only in Cleveland and more. This year we expect much
We told you a few weeks back that the Akron Aeros were considering changing the name of the team. They ran a contest over at the Akron Beacon Journal asking fans to vote on keeping ‘Aeros’ or suggesting a new monicker. The results of the original poll are being kept confidential, but the club has
We told you at the beginning of the season that new COO Jim Pfander was determined to make Akron the best AA franchise possible, and that everything was being evaluated and improved where necessary. Apparently that includes the name Aeros as well. The club is giving away some nice prizes to get your input- Grand
I can speak for all the people who help fill the pages of this site when I say there is never a bad time to go check out the Akron Aeros. That being said, some nights are, in fact, better than others. Tonight isn’t crowd favorite “Thirsty Thursday,” but it is a chance to get
Our man with the Aeros Al DiFranco is back with an interview of one of the Tribe’s bright young stars in the minors. Nick Hagadone has been one of the Tribe’s most highly regarded prospects since he was acquired in the Victor Martinez trade two seasons ago. This season, the 6’ 5” southpaw has dominated
Last night in Akron was sweet. Or should I say suite? The Aeros posted a 6-3 win against Reading, and hosted a group of WFNY writers and family/friends in a party suite to try the new food items that we hve talked about over the long winter. Naturally, we brought WFNY’s favorite photographer Jon Cole
If the “Three Dog Night” and “Nice 2 Meat You” Burger were not enough to fill you up on a trip to Canal Park, the Akron Aeros would like to introduce you to two more of their upcoming culinary creations at Canal Park. Keeping up with their initial promise of an additional menu item prior
While John Madden is slicing up Turduckens with his bare hands and Ted Mosby is opting for an additional turkey instead of the duck and chicken, the Akron Aeros are taking a Thanksgiving Day delicacy and turning it up a notch. Swapping the birds for dogs – hot dogs, that is. Enter the everso esculent “Three
Before the 2010 season started, Baseball America named Nick Hagadone the third-best prospect in the Cleveland Indians system. A dominating presence on the mound at 6’5″, 230-lbs and a left-hander, it made perfect sense for the publication to view him in such a fashion. He was arguably the player with the most upside acquired from
While the recent success of Josh Tomlin and Jeanmar Gomez has shocked many, it has not surprised those who have been around the Indians system all year. Assisted by last year’s moves at the trade deadline and then cemented in July 2010, Cleveland is now stacked with pitchers up and down the minor leagues. From
Seven straight wins started the second half of the 2010 season for the Akron Aeros and moved the team into a great position for a playoff run. After continuing to dominate the last-place Erie SeaWolves for four contests, the Aeros then also swept the first-place Altoona Curve to move to only 5.5 games behind the
From bizarre to typical to incredible, the story of Alex White in the Cleveland Indians organization continues to intrigue every passing day. Drafted in the first round of last year’s MLB Draft out of North Carolina, White was slated from the beginning as an eventual reliever for the long-term in Cleveland. The comments from the
I watched the movie The Bucket List the other day. You know the concept of a bucket list- things you’d like to do before you kick the bucket. My wife and I starting verbalizing a list. A lot of our list includes travel destinations. One item that was on my list I got to scratch
