The Cleveland Indians, fully intend to finish what they started last season. Today, in the Tribe's home opener Danny Salazar takes to the mound to try to dominate the Minnesota Twins. Salazar will get the chance to put his big arm on display this season in front of the home town crowd at Progressive Field.
This kid won't be on the pitch count the team had him on last season. His arm is fully healed, and the Indians are hoping to get at least 20 wins out of him this season. Salazar will remember this day for the rest of his life.
Going in front of the home town crowd, on opening day is Cleveland is more than a special memory. No fans in baseball do opening day, better than Cleveland fans. This town explodes with the thought of baseball getting started.
Salazar will get all the support he needs, in front of the sold out crowd. The festivities get started in Cleveland early and extend well after the game is over. There are all kinds of pre-game celebrations taking place in the rally alley, and with good reason.
Indians baseball is back, and the boys of summer are returning home today. What better place is there to be, other than Progressive Field for the Indians Home Opener?
