The Cleveland Indians will unveil a Frank Robinson statue at Progressive Field on Saturday. Robinson’s tenure in Cleveland was not long, but it was historic. On April 8, 1975, he became the first African-American manager in Major League history.
The Cleveland Indians had another squirrel run onto the field during a game on Friday. This just happened a couple weeks ago on May 13. I'm not sure if it's the same squirrel, but this time the game wasn't delayed for the little guy. Though broadcasters said that fans at Progressive Field were "standing and cheering." Sadly, the squirrel had to go eventually. One thing I'd like to address here is how the broadcasters questioned why fans go so crazy when squirrels show up at baseball games, yet when a squirrel runs through your backyard no one cares. The answer is this: sports squirrels are the best squirrels.
