I had to go East to go West…

Well after a couple of days without a blog update, I thought it would be about time.  I flew home from our Spring Training complex in Goodyear, Arizona on Sunday morning.  The flight had to take me from Phoenix to Philadelphia and then back to Cleveland.  I can’t figure out why they make you fly farther West to then go back East.  Anyway, here is a quick round up of the rest of how the Cleveland Indians Fantasy Camp went:

B.A.T.S and Killer B’s made it to the championship game with B.A.T.S winning the trophy.  It was a very close game all the way, but they edged out a win.  After the championship game on Thursday night, the campers had all of Friday to hang out and relax until the final banquet Friday night.  We held a raffle, a silent and a live auction.  All were pretty successful and raised over $14,000 for Cleveland Indians Charities.  Add that to our total of a little over $5,000 from Kangaroo Kourt fines and we had a pretty successful week.  There will be many happy youth baseball teams that, I’m sure, will appreciate the money. 

Now that Fantasy Camp is over, we can look towards our first Indians in the Community event being held tomorrow at the St. Augustine Hunger Center.  We will have about 12 front office employees headed over there from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm preparing and serving lunch to the less fortunate.  It should be a good time and I’ll hopefully have a picture that I can post up here (as soon as I figure out how to post pictures).  Stay tuned…
