SportsTime Ohio announced today the broadcast team for the 2015 Cleveland Indians regular season as well as a new set and the SportsTime Ohio Patio inside Progressive Field’s Right Field District.
Analyst Rick Manning and play-by-play voice Matt Underwood are back in the booth to call all the live action. Al Pawlowski will also return to host Indians Live pre- and postgame shows.
Last season, SportsTime Ohio introduced Jensen Lewis as co-host of Indians Live on select home games. This season, he will assume the role of analyst on all Indians Live pre- and postgame shows. Lewis pitched for the Indians 2007- 2010 after which he spent time in the Indians, Diamondbacks and Cubs minor leagues until 2013.
SportsTime Ohio is also pleased to welcome Andre Knott to the Cleveland Indians broadcast team as the new reporter. A graduate of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School and Kent State University, Knott has contributed to SportsTime Ohio’s coverage over the past several years in various capacities from covering high school football and Cleveland Browns to hosting Drennan Live. He was the Browns Radio Network sideline reporter for six years and has also been seen and heard covering Cleveland sports on WTAM, WKNR and WEWS.
Additionally, SportsTime Ohio is excited to announce a new Indians Live set inside Progressive Field. The set will be on the main concourse next to the new two-story bar named “The Corner” in the Right Field District. With an open air stage including the Indians Live desk, cameras and lighting, as well as a space for fans to gather and watch production of the live shows, this new set will be an entertaining complement to The Corner.
The network will further engage Tribe fans at the SportsTime Ohio Patio, located on the second level of The Corner. Fans are encouraged to visit the SportsTime Ohio Patio for fun, interactive events on select game nights. The patio area will also on occasion be the place for SportsTime Ohio’s interviews with in-park guests.
The Indians are making it easy for fans to check out the new Right Field District with the new $13 District Ticket, presented by SportsTime Ohio. For $13, fans get a Standing Room Only ticket, and the first drink – 12-ounce beer (for those 21 and over), Pepsi product or bottled water – is on the Tribe! More information can be found at Indians.com/DistrictTicket.
As previously announced, SportsTime Ohio will be carrying live all regular season games unless selected for exclusive national coverage. Visit Indians.com for schedule information.
