Ohio,” Captains General Manager & Captains TV Network Executive

very short time and we are excited about being added to their growing
programming line up, and we think fans will enjoy our brand of minor league
baseball as these players strive to become future Indians,” Brodzinski

“With a player like Fausto Carmona and other former Captains players on
the Indians right now, it will be fun to see who could be one of the next
players to advance to the Tribe”, stated David Bacon Vice President of
