Tribe Fest 2019 was a success!
Tribe Fest is an event held in the Cleveland area since 2012 where the Cleveland Indians organization gets together to celebrate the fans. It’s a time to mingle with your favorite players by getting autographs or taking pictures with them, playing games, asking questions and just having a ball. The event opened its doors for the seventh year in a row and Indians fans of all ages were welcomed to participate in an array of exciting activities. Festivities began with season ticket holders in the morning followed by the rest of the public around 1:30 p.m. The party lasted until 7 p.m.
Getting Up Close And Personal
This year’s Tribe Fest was a place where you could compete with José Ramírez in a game of Mario Kart or be inches away from Jim (Rosei) Rosenhaus as he interviewed alumni and fan favorites like Kenny Lofton and Carlos Baerga.
There was dancing with Slider and The Dogs as music filled the air around lines of patrons waiting to throw fastballs with Trevor Bauer in the pitching cage.
Air hockey, face painting and booths with different prizes were scattered around the hall.
Autograph sessions were sold separately and included big names like Carlos Carrasco, Mike Clevinger, Francisco Lindor, and Tyler Naquin.
If you got lucky you could even snag a selfie with a player as they walked around the event.
