fieldThe Indianapolis Indians are rolling out a new online poll that allows fans to choose what mowing pattern will appear on the Victory Field playing field for the Tribe’s April 9 season opener against the rival Toledo Mud Hens. Only in minor league baseball would fans get this kind of opportunity.

Fans can vote on one of four different patterns. The patterns include the Diamond Cut, Angels Cut, Big Little Cut and the Checkered Board Cut. You can see the different cuts in the accompanying photo—and on the Indians’ Web site.

Fans can find the poll online at www.IndyIndians.com. Voting will end April 3, then the Indians artistic mowing crew will get busy.

  • This is great. Way to get fans involved with a local sports team.
  • Absolutely fantastic! With an emphasis on 'fan.' Affordable and inclusive, what a novel idea. This town's major league teams should take notice. p.s. My vote is for the checker board.
  • Great idea. You have got to love the Indians for this. Now bring back the old baseball indian head logo.
  • For those having a little trouble finding the poll on the Indians' Web site, check out the bottom right hand corner of the home page at www.indyindians.com. By the way, Diamond is leading so far, closely followed by Angles and Checker Board.
  • The trouble with the field is that it is too perfect, it needs to be peppered with bad spots that will make the ball bounce a crazy way. Then whatever mowing pattern that will hide the bad spots from the opposing fielders.

  1. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
