⚾ Time is running out to catch a Clippers game

The Clippers return to action tonight for the team's second-to-last week of homestands.

  • With 10 games left on the schedule, here are two reasons you should head to 330 Huntington Park Lane:

For the baseball

The Clips enter today with a 78-55 record, just a few games behind Nashville for first in the division.

  • The top team plays the other International League divisional winner in a one-game championship.

Also, you will almost certainly watch a future Cleveland Guardian take the field.

  • Consider this: The Clippers lineup last Sept. 14 featured four consecutive hitters who debuted with Cleveland this season.
  • And that doesn't include Steven Kwan, a 5-foot-9 defensive wizard lighting it up at Progressive Field.

Tyler's pro tip: Check out catcher Bo Naylor while you still can. He hits the snot out of the ball.

  • Impress your friends by pointing out that his older brother, Josh, already plays for the Guardians.

For everything else

If a ticket as low as $8 isn't enough of a bargain, the team's last two homestands offer plenty of promotions.

  • Four Dime-a-Dog nights remain: tonight and Sept. 26-28.
  • Tomorrow is Puppypalooza, when you can bring a furry pal to the ballpark and participate in a pregame parade.
  • Thursday tickets are discounted with a college ID.
  • Friday has $5 beer and wine.

☀️ Plus, this week's forecast calls for perfect baseball weather.
