Halfway Through 2009, Can the Indians Give Fans More Than "Dollar Dog Night?"


Written by Daniel Wolf

The All-Star game is over and so is the All-Star break.

What does this mean for the Cleveland Indians?

Maybe putting everything together to make a run in their division?

Maybe if there is some kind of miracle.

So far during the 2009 MLB season, Indians fans have really only had one thing to look forward to and that's "Dollar Dog Night!"

When I attended this wonderful event in June, I was amazed that even $1 hot dogs can't fill Progressive Field to capacity.

In all honesty, I don't even remember who the Indians were playing or even what the outcome of the game was, because the game was extremely mundane.

I do remember that there were over 28,000 hot dogs sold.

The 2009 season may still be half over, but the optimist in me says that there is still half the season left to turn it around.

Regardless of what the Indians really do in the second half of the 2009 season, there are going to be major changes in the organization.

Cleveland sports reporter Tony Rizzo even said, during one of his reports on Wednesday, "I can guarantee that there will be many changes for the Indians in the off-season. Especially in the front office." (paraphrased)

As an Indians fan, I hope that owner Larry Dolan makes the right decisions in the offseason, otherwise one of the best ballparks in baseball will continue to be two-thirds empty during home games and not even "Dollar Dog Night" can help fill those seats.
