A family who has done their absolute best to give back to Northeast Ohio during these trying times was honored recently by the Cleveland Indians.

The Longville family consists of 12 front-line workers, including five nurses, three occupational/respiratory therapists, two firefighters, an anesthesiologist, and a pharmacist. When Al Roker visited Cleveland as a part of the "Reopening America" series on "The Today Show," Roker and the Tribe teamed up to surprise the Longville family with tickets to a home game this season.

A little over a week ago, the Longvilles attended a game at Progressive Field against the Los Angeles Angels Family and friends of the Longvilles were honored on the jumbotron with a special shoutout for their heroic work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Longville family brought a group of over 65 people to take a much-needed break from their jobs and spend some quality time together. The Indians organization provided the Longvilles with all the tickets for their memorable group outing.
