Nothing Melts Snow Like a Hot Stove

So, in case you hadn't heard, it snowed in Northeast Ohio last weekend.

WTAM helped us warm up by replaying a classic Indians game on Sunday afternoon, and the Plain Dealer is sharing photos from the new spring training facility in Arizona . . . where Grady is already hard at work.

Indians Fun-Bunchers Onion and Ketchup — Joey Morona -

The Cleveland Indians have signed a closer, a third baseman and a starting pitcher this off-season, but three crucial positions remain unfilled.

To be winners, the Tribe needs wieners.

Specifically: fit folks who can don the Ketchup, Mustard and Onion hot dog costumes and sprint around the foul lines for fan amusement. The race has become a mid-game fan favorite. There's even a Web site,, dedicated to exposing the conniving condiment. And the Tribe is dead serious about its dogs. An ad on the team's Web site for "Fun Bunch" seasonal workers notes: "Applicants must have some type of previous training in high school sports/track and cardiorespiratory endurance between 400-800 meters. Running skills will be tested as Fun Bunch employees will be required to participate in the Hot Dog Races."

Let's just hope the Tribe scouts don't find the king of all Ketchups, only to have the Yankees swoop in and sign him for $18 an hour.
