CLEVELAND — It has been a busy week in Cleveland that started with the MLB All-Star Game at Progressive Field that is now wrapping up with the Tall Ships Festival.

Today, the City Club of Cleveland hosted a forum that’s focused on the success of the All-Star Game. Also being discussed were the other major sporting events coming to Cleveland throughout the next six years, like the 2021 NFL Draft, “offering unique opportunities to further conversations about diversity and inclusion.”

WKYC’s Russ Mitchell moderated the conversation, which included David Gilbert, the President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, along with Dennis Lehman, Executive Vice President of Business for the Cleveland Indians.
