Alomar: Lifetime Achievement Award At Greater Cleveland Sports Awards

(Cleveland) – Honors for Cleveland Indians legend Sandy Alomar, Jr.

The former Indians catcher and current first base coach will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards, at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel on February 6.

Alomar spent 11 seasons behind the plate for the Indians, from 1990 to 2000.  He was a six-time All-Star selection, including being selected as the MVP for the 1997 All-Star Game, which was played in Cleveland.  Alomar was the 33rd player to be inducted into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame.

After being traded by the Indians in 2000, Alomar was involved with five clubs before retiring from Major League Baseball in 2007.

Alomar is now in his ninth season on the Tribe’s coaching staff, serving one year as bench coach, part of one season as interim manager, and most of the time as First Base coach.

Tickets to the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards are available through this link.  WTAM 1100 and 106.9 will broadcast live from the event.
