Tribe fans still luke warm

Cleveland is a very strong city when it comes to supporting professional sports, but even the die hard cities have some issues with how teams are managed. The Cleveland Indians and their ownership are still attempting to renew the fan base they had in the mid 90’s. The Tribe was averaging around 3 million fans a year.
Terry Pluto gives an interesting perspective on why Cleveland is still struggling to raise the attendance numbers. I personally think the Dolan’s are still too “cheap” on the salaries and Mark Shapiro has done an excellent PR job with the fans and players. The Indians organization needs to understand that big money players bring fans. We recently signed some young talented players to long term deals. The benefits to this won’t be seen for at least a couple years.
