Weird Moments in Cleveland Sports
Weird doesn’t even begin to describe some of the moments in the history of Cleveland sports! The Cavs, Browns, and Indians do have their fair share of wild fans, staff, mascots, and players, and these stories prove it. Scoring layups in the wrong basket, fights with Triple-A teams, a gunshot wound while on a bus in a cheerleading outfit and go-go boots, a season-ending injury from popping a wheelie, almost losing an eye from a referee’s flag, being traded for yourself, insect invasions, mascots falling off outfield walls, and so many more. We’re sure some of these people will never live down these moments. We’d hate to be in their shoes!

Vince Guerrieri Bio

Vince Guerrieri is an award-winning journalist for the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram and Medina Gazette. His writing also appears regularly in various regional and national magazines and online publications. A native of Youngstown and graduate of Bowling Green State University, he is the author of three books on Ohio sports history.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
