CLEVELAND — On Tuesday's 3News Now with Stephanie Haney, the top headlines include at least 22 deaths and devastation in Nashville after two tornadoes ripped through the area, facts to help you stay prepared without making you afraid related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, and how the market is reacting to an emergency interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve.

Plus, comedian Jim Gaffigan would like to try his first Polish Boy when he brings "The Pale Tourist" show to the Wolstein Center on Friday. He tweeted asking where to find the best one in town, and may have a weak stomach, because he also asked for emergency room recommendations.

In spring training news, it's been more than 30 years since a Cleveland area-born position player suited up for the Cleveland Indians, and Mayfield native Mitch Longo has a chance to break that streak.

After spending last season with Double-A Akron RubberDucks, Longo is a non-roster invite to the Tribe's big league camp this spring in Goodyear.

Through Sunday, Mar. 1, Longo was hitting .571 (4-for-7) for the spring with two doubles and one run scored in six games of action.

Longo has his sights set on heading west to Triple-A Columbus. And eventually, to one of the ballparks where he used to cheer on his hometown team as a kid.

As for other big sporting events in town, The American Cornhole League 2020 National Championships will take place at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland from March 13-15, with the top 1,062 players competing for the top title.

Admission is free and open to the public with reserved seating for ESPN broadcasts.
