Indians name 2014 Adam Gockowski Brohio Governor


Cleveland, OH-The fans - and Nick Swisher - have spoken, and have elected Adam Gockowski as the first full-time Governor of Brohio, in Section 117 at Progressive Field.

Gockowski, a Twinsburg native and video engineer at a Lakewood company, now will preside over the excitable Section 117 -- the Nick Swisher-spawned section of Progressive Field that also went viral on social media throughout the summer of 2013 - for all Friday and Saturday games during the 2014 season.

Fans originally submitted videos to be considered for one of four finalist spots, and those finalists - Gockowski, Ben Henceroth, Greg Niemojewski and Eric Pratt -- then campaigned in front of Swisher himself on the KeyBank main stage in January at Tribe Fest, held at the ballpark.
