Cleveland Sports Fans in for a Treat

Cleveland sports fans will want to mark their calendars this January as the Tuscarawas County Public Library System’s Main Library will host two programs about Cleveland sports teams with some very special guests.

On Wednesday, January 15th at 6 pm, Cleveland Plain Dealer sports writer Terry Pluto and Dover-native and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition anchor Amanda Rabinowitz will be at the Main Library to discuss all things Ohio sports.

Pluto and Rabinowitz host a weekly segment titled “The View from Pluto” on WKSU where they discuss the Browns, Cavs, and Indians, as well as college sports.

“Northeastern Ohio is big on sports,” said Library Director Michelle McMorrow Ramsell. “This program is a great opportunity for sports fans in our county to hear from people just as passionate about Cleveland sports as we are.”

Pluto and Rabinowitz will host an in-person discussion about the state of Cleveland sports. A book signing to follow the event.

On Wednesday, January 29th at 6:00 pm, the library will get a special visit from Cleveland Indians radio play-by-play announcer Jim Rosenhaus.

“If you listen to Indians baseball games on the radio, you’re going to recognize his voice,” said Library Public Service Associate Jeff Bray, who planned this program. “Mr. Rosenhaus also hosts Indians Warm Up and Tribe Talk on WTAM radio.”

According to Bray, Rosenhaus will be discussing the Tribe’s offseason moves, the upcoming season, tell some stories, and will be taking question from the audience.
