CLEVELAND — Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians are concluding their 2019 All-Star Legacy initiative with a special ceremony unveiling refurbishments to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland location at East Technical High School.

This project fully transformed the performing arts room, installing a sound recording studio with brand-new equipment, a collaborative workspace stocked with Mac desktop computers and a vibrant lounge area.

The site, which will be utilized by students at East Technical High School and members of local Boys & Girls Clubs, will be instrumental in helping retention rates both at the high school and at the local Boys & Girls Club.

MLB and the Cleveland Indians have donated approximately $5 million through MLB Charities and Cleveland Indians Charities toward the All-Star Legacy Initiative.
