CLEVELAND – The Guardians announced the induction of John Adams into their Distinguished Hall of Fame for non-uniformed personnel. Adams debuted bringing his bass drum on August 24, 1973 to Cleveland Municipal Season and is celebrating 50 seasons supporting the organization. Since 1973, Adams has attended more than 3,700 games leading fans in support of the team with his drum.

Adams becomes the 12th person to receive this honor, joining most recently long-time traveling secretary Mike Seghi who was inducted into the Distinguished Hall of Fame last Friday, August 19.

As a legacy gift in tribute for John’s dedication in supporting the team for 50 seasons, the organization commissioned local sculptor David Deming to create a bronzed replica drum affixed to his actual Progressive Field bleacher bench. The John Adams drum bench has been installed on the top level of Heritage Park.
