Winter Press tour Sandusky Style

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IJanuary 22, 2009

I was able to attend the Indians Winter Caravan on Monday at the Kalahari Convention Center in Sandusky, Ohio where David Huff, Ryan Garko, Derek Shelton, and Matt Underwood answered the fans questions, signed some autographs, and met the fans. Not much of any substance came from the one hour session, other than David Huff seems shy, Garko seemed a bit surprised by Wedge's thoughts of him in the outfield, and Derek Shelton speaking the company line. Garko further talked about the possible transition...

Garko expressed surprise that he may be asked to play the outfield.

‘‘One of my friends sent me a text message saying that he read in the paper I was going out there,’’ Garko explained. ‘‘That’s fine with me, though nobody has said anything to me. If Eric Wedge thinks it helps the team, then I’ll do everything I can to help.’’ from the Sandusky Register

The event was quite large and had games, ball park food and beer. I went to one similar to this last year at Stampers bar in Fairview Park that was much more interactive and interesting. The three following videos will give you the gist of the whole event.
