Imagine having to reschedule your wedding because you were traded. That’s exactly what happened to Indians pitcher Adam Cimber: 'Beyond the Dugout'

We go 'Beyond the Dugout' for an in-depth conversation with Adam Cimber.

CLEVELAND — Get to know more about Adam Cimber as we go "Beyond the Dugout" with the Cleveland Indians reliever.

Question: First thought when you were traded to Cleveland?

Cimber: Excited to win!  There was a lot of thoughts in that first hour, where I am going to live, what I am going to tell my wife or my fiancé at the time what were going to do about our wedding we had planned for October.  When I saw the standings, well the Indians are up 10 games or whatever, we are going to the playoffs.  I was like we have an October 20th, wedding, so we had to push that back to November, so that was a big one!  

Question:  Wow, we are really getting to know you now, how did she take that?

Cimber:   I mean she was excited she’s like all-right let’s do it.

Question: That’s got-to be a mental grind?

Cimber:   Yeah it was.  It was something I wasn’t even think about to begin the year.  We planned the wedding I was still in the Minor Leagues.  It was a win, win.  I mean that’s good reason to reschedule your wedding.

Question: Finally, you’re a tattoo guy, I see.

Cimber: Yeah, I’ve got a few.

Question:  Wowhow many do you have?   

Cimber:  I haven’t counted recently but probably fifteen or sixteen. 

Question:  What’s your favorite one?  

Cimber: My first one I think is still one of my favorites. GHAP (God has a plan). It’s what I write on the back of the mound every time I get up.
