The Indians will have a number of festivities for fans prior to Wednesday's game. 

Former Tribe slugger Andre Thornton, a four-time all-star and Indians hall of famer, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game.

Other festivities include:

- Veteran local singer Dan Polk will sing the national anthem.

- One, a U2 Tribute band, will play on Gateway Plaza beginning at 5:30 p.m.

- Budweiser will bring its Build-A-Bar to Gateway Plaza, where fans over the age of 21 can enjoy Budweiser products up until game time. The bar opens at 4:30 p.m.

- SportsTime Ohio's "All Bets Are Off," hosted by Bruce Drennan, will broadcast live from Gate C plaza (near the Bob Feller statue) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

- The "Mike Trivisonno Show" will broadcast live from the Champion Windows Studio inside Progressive Field from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

- WMMS' "The Alan Cox Show" will broadcast live from the corner of Rally Alley and Gateway Plaza from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
