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. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
