Swisher helps Indians add extra fireworks night

CLEVELAND -- With less than a month left in the regular season, Indians first baseman Nick Swisher felt the time had come to thank Cleveland's fans for how they have welcomed him to their city and team this year.

To do so, Swisher funded an additional fireworks night for Progressive Field's promotional schedule.

"It's been such a great opportunity for my wife and I to be here," Swisher said. "It's just a little thank you. That's all. Come down to The Pro, man. Bring your friends. Just the way this season has gone, we're getting better crowds than they did last year, which is a step up.

"But, hey, come on down. Watch a game. Enjoy the fireworks. It's just a little something from us."

The added fireworks night -- complete with Ohio-themed music handpicked by Swisher -- will take place following the Indians' game against the Astros on Sept. 21. The show will be the 17th and final fireworks display at Progressive Field this season.

Tickets are available on indians.com.

"It's just been such an awesome experience this year for us," Swisher said. "And there's so many more to come. We love it here. It's great. So it's just a little thank you. I've got a bunch of tricks up my sleeve. Who doesn't like fireworks, right?"
