Trend with the Tribe

Thanks to the unwavering, year-round support from our fans, the Tribe continues to boast the top Twitter following of any team in Minor League Baseball.

As part of the Indians social media, “experience,” if you will, fans can engage with the team and its current and former players to…

  1. Have a behind-the-scenes peek at professional baseball
  2. Learn the inside scoop on all of the daily happenings
  3. (Above all) Get to know your Tribe on a more personal level

______________________________________________________________________

The players may have that “tough guy” exterior during the season, but a softer side sometimes shows through in the Twitter-sphere.

Take, for example, Mother’s Day (awwww):

______________________________________________________________________

↓ RHP Brandon Cumpton ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ OF Jaff Decker ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF Matt Hague ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF Neil Walker ↓

______________________________________________________________________

And the obligatory “exception” to the rule: A non-Mother’s-Day exchange between Chase and Momma d’Arnaud after his incredible, over-the-wall catch on SportsCenter:

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF/OF Chase d’Arnaud ↓

______________________________________________________________________

Then there’s the unique – and let us stress, self-imposed, – “dress code” in the clubhouse.

Or sometimes, even in the airport for a road trip (see the World Cup picture below).

______________________________________________________________________

↓ C  Tony Sanchez ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ OF Chris Dickerson ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF/OF Jay Harrison ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ OF Jaff Decker ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ Entire 2014 Indians Team (…for better or worse) ↓

______________________________________________________________________

And again, the “exception” to the above jersey theme (We’ll give Nick Kingham a pass… he’s a pretty good pitcher).

______________________________________________________________________

↓ RHP Nick Kingham ↓

______________________________________________________________________

Fans can also read words of “support:”

______________________________________________________________________

↓ C  Tony Sanchez ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ RHP  John Holdzkom ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF/OF Jay Harrison ↓

______________________________________________________________________

Or sometimes…not so “supportive:”

______________________________________________________________________

↓ LHP  Adam Wilk ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ RHP  Jared Hughes ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ OF  Chris Dickerson ↓

______________________________________________________________________

Either way, Twitter helps showcase that everyone truly cares for the entirety of the organization:

______________________________________________________________________

↓ INF Jordy Mercer ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ Entire 2014 Indians Team ↓

______________________________________________________________________

↓ LHP Adam Wilk ↓

______________________________________________________________________

…Maybe “too much” caring, on occasion…:

______________________________________________________________________

↓ C  Tony Sanchez & OF Jaff Decker ↓

______________________________________________________________________

So, in the end, whether the Tribe is in mid- or postseason form…

On the road or in its home ballpark at Victory Field…

We – the team and its players alike – ensure fans can always stay in touch with their hometown Indianapolis Indians:
