As suggested on these pages last week (see #118), Kenny Lofton has rejoined the Indians, and he played left field last night - the first time in his major league career that he has played left field. If he can change, we can adjust to some indoor baseball when the weather is bad.

Cuyahoga County commissioners have approved a one-quarter of a cent incease in the sales tax to fund a new convention center, which we desperately need. Make it one-half of a cent and we could afford to put a roof on at least one of our stadiums.

The Indians got into town very late from Texas because they had to play a Sunday night game that ended around midnight Cleveland time. Why? Because Texas cannot play daytime games due to extreme heat this time of year. Maybe texasneedsadome.com is available.

Including games and community events, Jacobs Field hosts 90 to 95 events per year and Browns Stadium hosts another 15 or so. With roofs, they would go from stadiums to multi-purpose "venues" that could hosts hundreds of activities and programs.
