Once again the Cleveland Indians and WKYC are teaming up for Weather Education Day at Progressive Field on May 21, 2014.
Thousands of students, teachers and parents will participate in a pre-game weather education program, presented by WKYC's Weather Team, before the start of the game.
Each student will be given a Weather Education Day workbook that is packed full of useful weather information and activities.
The Weather Day program begins at 10:00 AM. The game between the Cleveland Indians and their division rival Detroit Tigers will begin at 12:05 PM.
Weather Education Day at Progressive Field has become one of Northern Ohio's premier field trips for school groups.
The on-field program is created and produced by WKYC-Channel 3 Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling. Kling, along with Hollie Strano, Marcus Walter and Bruce Kalinowski will do demonstrations and give explanations on the special relationship that weather has on the game of baseball. Of course, Indians mascot Slider will be there along with the rest of the Indians squad.
Tickets are available at a reduced rate for school groups in attendance. Tickets include the pre-game Weather Education Day program as well as seats for the game. Lunch packages are also available. All homeschool and non-traditional school participants are also offered a reduced rate.
