It's time, Cleveland fans!

Game One of the Indians postseason is here. 

So, how can you make sure you're prepared? We've got you covered.

First Pitch

7:38 p.m.


The Indians encourage all fans to #RockYourRed during all home Postseason
games at Progressive Field and throughout the city of Cleveland to help create an
even bigger home-field advantage for the team.

Ceremonial First Pitch

Indians first base coach San Ceremonial first pitch: Sandy Alomar Jr., on the 20th
anniversary of his game-tying homer off Mariano Rivera in the 1997 ALDS 

National Anthem

Scott Posey. He's a long-standing arts teacher at Lake Catholic High School in Mentor. A triple threat teaching drama, fine arts and bank. He's an actor by trade and no stranger to singing the Star Spangled Banner. With at least 60 performances of the national anthem under his belt, he says performing at this game, in particular, came about in a funny way. After years of asking the teacher to send in an audition tape, a parent of a former student acted as Posey's agent and did it himself. 

Presentation of Colors
