The Indians have a home game scheduled for Saturday at 4:10 PM. Problem: the Cavaliers have their first round playoff game against the Bulls scheduled for around 3PM. The arena and the ballpark are right next to each other, however, so that brings opportunity: ticket holders for the Cavs-Bulls game will be allowed to purchase
special $5 tickets to see the remainder of the Indians-White Sox game.
So if you’re an Indians fan who happened to snag Cavs tickets as well, no need to choose because it’s all jake. Literally: Peavy and Westbrook are pitching on Saturday.
A lot of teams do funny promo videos during spring training. The Seattle Mariners have led the league in this category for years now, with their marketing and p.r. folks producing and a lot of game and sometimes hammy players starring in some excellent clips. They’re doing them again this year, if you’re curious.
The Milwaukee Brewers have hopped on the humor train in 2018, and their latest entry in this category of commercials is excellent. It’s their riff on “The Sandlot.”
The biggest difference: Smalls really could kill you in this one. Brett Phillips is a lot more jacked than the kid who played Scotty in the original was.
The Beast, however, is just as terrifying now as he was in 1993.
