CLEVELAND — Get to know more about Mike Clevinger as we go "Beyond the Dugout" with the Cleveland Indians starting pitcher.
Question: Favorite baseball memory as a kid?
Clevinger: Probably my Cooperstown home run. I think that was a great memory. Getting that home run that you knew was going into the Youth Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, that was big!
Question: What’s a perfect off day for you in Cleveland?
Clevinger: Get up, take the girls to park. Get breakfast at First Watch in Crocker, get the girls back and have a sitter and then go to Greenhouse Tavern downtown and then have a nice steak and some good crispy brussel sprouts and then a movie. That would probably be the ideal off-day.
Question: If we had a genie here and you had one wish what would it be?
Clevinger: For more genies, (laugh) yeah!
Question: That’s a no-brainer, right?
Clevinger: Yeah, no brainer.
