For that time Mark Lewis asked the cab driver in New York what the name of the stadium the Yankees played was . . .

 

For the time our centerfielder caught the second out of the top of the first inning, jogged in, and let the runner on second tag and score because he forgot how many outs there were at the earliest moment in baseball history . . .

 

For ten cent beer night . . .

 

For Oil Can Boyd complaining about Cleveland building “a stadium next to the ocean” . . .

 

For Cory Snyder and Joe Carter and that damned Sports Illustrated cover . . .

 

For Al Lopez and Mike Hargrove, who managed great teams but just couldn’t get that last victory . . .

 

For that tragic day in March of 1993 . . .

 

For every parent, grandparent, aunt, and uncle who ever took those kids to those games in that cavernous ballpark to watch a lot of bad baseball, especially my dad . . .

 

Do it tonight.  Just do it.

 

Go Tribe!
