Look at this! Two entries in a week(ish)! I feel like I’m already on a roll.
Starting up this Saturday in the Cleveland Indians Charities world of the Cleveland Indians is our annual Fantasy Camp. The camp runs from January 13 (campers fly in to the Indians Spring Training Complex in Goodyear, AZ) and finishes up on Friday, January 21. All proceeds raised from the camp go straight to Cleveland Indians Charities.
Basically, what you get are a bunch of guys who live out their dreams (or fantasy, if you will) of being a major league ballplayer. For the entire week, these guys are treated just like the pros and compete in games, practices, drills, workouts, etc., all of which are led by Cleveland Indians alumni. If you have never witnessed this camp, it is quite entertaining. Some games get pretty intense and you really want to get out there and play baseball after watching them go at it all day. Plus, hanging out with former pros is pretty cool too.
Luckily, yours truly will get to travel down to Goodyear this year for Fantasy Camp (to work, not play) and I’m hoping to give some blog updates as the week goes on. Until then, be sure to check out our community page on www.indians.com You’ll be able to see what fun things we have planned for 2011.
