Join us as we dive into the world of baseball with Cheyne Reiter, the Director of Communications for the Indianapolis Indians, and the beloved mascot Rowdie. They will be discussing exciting topics surrounding the team and the upcoming games at Victory Field.
One significant aspect that will be highlighted is the Indians’ tribute to the Negro Leagues. From today until Saturday, the Indians will don special Indianapolis ABCs jerseys and caps on the field. Listeners will gain insight into the rich history of the Negro Leagues in Indianapolis and the impact they had on the local community. Reiter will shed light on the prominence of the Negro Leagues and their lasting legacy in the city.
