Guardians Honor Iconic Fan

Organic ideas from fans can create the most iconic moments.

Really nice from Cleveland about an iconic fan who just made himself part of their game presentation.

One day in 1973 he decided to bring is bass drum to the game and the atmosphere in Cleveland was never the same.  The old footage is really fun as well.

After 50 years the team is honoring John Adams with a bronzed drum in their Heritage Park.

The story is a reminder that not every great idea is created in a brainstorming session, and fans will always be the centerpiece of the show. Being open to organic and fan-generated content can make magic for your team. Be open and welcoming to fan’s enthusiasm.

…this also made me wonder if I could walk into a ballpark with a 3 foot bass drum nowadays. Ha.
