CLEVELAND -- Section 117 is no longer an anonymous corner of Progressive Field. It's now known as "Brohio" and is the official cheering section of Nick Swisher.
There's even a t-shirt.
The concept came from the Indians organization to combine two of Swisher's loves - the state of Ohio and the use of the word "bro." From there, Brohio was born.
At Friday night games during the regular season, the first 100 fans who bought tickets in Section 117 also scored free Brohio t-shirts. (Aviators glasses on the state of Ohio are featured on the front and the saying, "S'up, Bro" is on the back.)
It's safe to say Section 117 will be raucous and rowdy at Wednesday's Wild-Card game, especially when "Hang On Sloopy" hits the loudspeakers.
If you're feeling left out, you can always get your own Brohio t-shirt. Several incarnations have popped up for sale on the Internet.
