The Bob Feller Act of Valor Award was created in 2013 to recognize individuals for possessing the values, integrity and dedication to serving our country that Bob Feller himself displayed.
The Cleveland Indians are proud to support community initiatives that support service, health, fitness, diversity and sustainability.
Terry Francona and UnitedHealthcare will team up with the Cleveland VA Medical Center to provide Club Lounge tickets to select military veterans and their families every Sunday home game. The veterans will receive Indians-branded military caps and T-shirts, as well as an in-game scoreboard message.
Greg Allen will visit Cleveland Clinic Children's patients at the hospital throughout the season and encourage them to find the silver lining in their journey back to health. Allen will surprise each patient with a jersey and tickets to a future Indians game, where they will have the opportunity to chat with the outfielder prior to that night's contest.
Brad Hand and his wife, Morgan, will work in partnership with KeyBank to support youth from the Boys & Girls Club. Brad and Morgan will spend time with members of the Boys & Girls Club and then surprise a lucky family with jerseys and a KeyBank gift card following the event.
Health and Fitness
This event, developed by Cleveland Clinic with the support of the Indians and owner Paul Dolan as founding partners, has raised over $8 million for cancer research in its first three years.
The Cleveland Indians partnered with TeamSmile, local dentists and P&G to provide critical dental services for 350 children from the Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland. A day of dental health education and fun activities allowed many children to receive dental care for the first time in their lives.
The Cleveland Indians are committed to developing and maintaining an environment that embraces diversity to enrich our core values, enhance our competitive position, strengthen our economic impact, and foster a respectful appreciation for the local and global communities in which we operate.
Since its inaugural year in 1994, Progressive Field has been recycling plastic, cardboard, and aluminum. The home of the Cleveland Indians continues to be among the industry leaders in taking a proactive approach to supporting various environmental initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint at Progressive Field.
