The Cleveland Indians Wives Association is committed to positively impacting our local community. Throughout the season, the Wives volunteer at a variety of nonprofit organizations. In 2016, the group made six visits to local hospitals, spending time with youth patients doing arts and crafts. This year, the wives will visit Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital and Providence House to visit with youth patients and residents.
