Dreaming of Fantasy Camp

Yes, I am dreaming of one day going to the Indians Fantasy Camp.  I'm sure I've posted about it on here before.  Maybe not. I dunno.  What I do know is that I would be tempted to sell my Indians collection for a week of playing with pros, legends, fellow fans, and getting some of the coolest one-of-a-kind memorabilia with MY NAME on it!

The camp costs $4900 for first timers.  I am officially setting that amount as a goal that I'd like to reach one way or another.  I can only imagine the feeling of walking to the field only to have Bob Feller or Pat Tabler, Mike Hargrove or Rick Manning or ANY of the other pros/legends of Cleveland baseball shake your hand and welcome me into the family.  Oh, man.

I wouldn't care if I walked away with a 12.00 ERA and a .000 batting average. Well, okay, yeah I would. I mean, come on.  But, my stats would pale in comparison to donning an Indians uniform with my name on it while wielding a bat, getting a hit and taking a slide into second.  Yeah, I live for that - or the thought of doing that, anyway.


  1. While I don't get to put on the uniform or get welcomed into the team's family, I feel the same way the few times I get access to the players for interviews. Talking about anything to players (especially coaches now who were my baseball card idols) is an awesome experience. I hope you get that chance someday.

  2. You are not the only one that has ever dreamed of going to Indians fantasy camp. I have always wanted to do just this. One day, my best friend, who is also a die hard Tribe fan, and I would like to go and enjoy this fun time even if we would probably suck it up badly. But it would be the memories that we would take from it all.

  3. Exactly! The memories would be worth it all!
