Nick Swisher says “bro” a lot. If you sit in section 117 at Progressive Field on Friday nights, you’re an official member of the state of … Brohio. From the Cleveland Indians:
Fans interested in claiming their residency in “Brohio” at Progressive Field now have the chance on Fridays in Section 117.
Nick Swisher and the Indians will include “Brohio” shirts with the first 100 ticket purchases in Brohio – Section 117 – at remaining Friday night home games at Progressive Field. Pricing for the tickets will vary by game and tickets are available at www.indians.com/brohio.
Brohio. I was born in Flint, Michigan and grew up in West Virginia. Now I live in Brohio. I feel like the universe has conspired to put me in pitiable and/or embarrassing places for my entire life.
MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports that Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig‘s one-game suspension has been rescinded. Instead, he will make a charitable donation. The alternative “punishment” was agreed to by Major League Baseball and the Players’ Association.
Puig was suspended one game two weeks ago after flipping off some hecklers at Progressive Field in Cleveland. Puig showed remorse after the game, saying, “I stooped to their level.”
Entering Tuesday night’s action, Puig was batting .251/.331/.458 with 14 home runs and 41 RBI in 287 plate appearances.
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre picked a good time to hit his 450th home run. With the game tied 1-1 in the top of the ninth inning, Beltre took the first pitch he saw from closer Cody Allen for a ride, sending it into the left field seats at Progressive Field to break the tie.
The Rangers would go on to win 2-1. Beltre finished 2-for-4. He now has 2,969 career hits, leaving him 31 shy of becoming the 31st member of the 3,000 hit club.
On the season, Beltre is hitting .303/.373/.562 with five home run sand 22 RBI in 102 plate appearances.
