"This is the first time in Indians history that we have scheduled our Fireworks shows for back to back nights on Labor Day weekend at Victory Field," said Indians Vice President and General Manager Cal Burleson. "We think it is a great way to reward our fans for the tremendous support they have given us this season."
On Friday, September 4th the Indians host the Louisville Bats, Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds at 7:15 p.m. A spectacular Victory Field fireworks show follows the game, presented by Coors Light and WTHR-13.
Saturday, September 5th marks the 2009 home finale as the Tribe face the same Louisville Bats at 6 p.m. Fans in attendance that night can register to win Indians player jerseys worn in the game that night as a part of Shirt-Off-the-Back Night. Winners will be selected during the game and presented with their autographed, game-worn jerseys in a ceremony on the field immediately following the game.
The Indians home season will then come to a rousing conclusion with a post-game fireworks show presented by Toyota and WTHR-13.
Tickets are on sale now and going fast. Last season the Indians drew nearly 30,000 fans for their two home games. Fans can purchase tickets by clicking Tribe Tickets, visiting the Victory Field Box Office at 501 West Maryland Street or calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.
