Eastlake, Ohio – There is a new look coming to Classic Park in Eastlake. A new video board will be erected as part of the renovations coming to the park that The Lake County Captains call home.
The Captains enter their 15th season and made a major announcement, revealing plans to construct a brand new video board, which will cover approximately 1,100 square feet, roughly three times the size of the old scoreboard.
Another exciting announcement during the Hot Stove event detailed a plan to create a “Miracle League Baseball Field and Inclusive Playground” for Special Needs children in Lake County, which will allow developmentally disabled kids to play baseball and other sports on a specially made playing field, the first of its kind in Northeast Ohio.
The Hot Stove event was held Thursday evening at the new field house where season ticket holders gathered to hear from the front office and new manager Larry Day. Day was the hitting coach for the Lynchburg Hillcats, also an affiliate of Cleveland.
“I think the biggest thing with Frankie during that (50-game hit-streak) was not only did he have that streak, but he’s also a catcher. The catcher side of it made him have to prepare for the opposing lineup, so he couldn’t be consumed by (the thought of) getting a hit and thinking about a hit-streak,” said Day.
Next to Day was long time Cleveland Indians pitcher Greg Swindell who the team is looking to for leadership and coaching of the young pitchers in the Single-A Indians affiliate.
2017 will be the first full season for many of the Tribe’s promising prospects to make their step towards reaching the show.
Former-Captains Francisco Lindor, Roberto Perez, Tyler Naquin, Cody Allen, Corey Kluber, Ryan Merrit, and Jose Ramirez all played huge roles in the Cleveland Indians’ magical run to the World Series.
Onlookers and faithful fans enjoyed a delicious meal, raffles and a walk down memory lane with Swindell who spoke of his journey to where he is today and what his plans and expectations would be for the Captains organization.
