The Cleveland Indians and WKYC are once again teaming up for Weather Education Day at Progressive Field on Thursday, April 21, 2016.
Sponsored by the Northeast Regional Sewer District, Weather Education Day brings thousands of students, teachers and parents together to participate in a pre-game weather education program, presented by WKYC's Weather Team, before the start of the game.
Each student will be given a Weather Education Day workbook that is packed full of useful weather information and activities.
Weather Education Day at Progressive Field has become one of Northern Ohio's premier field trips for school groups. The program begins at 10:00 AM and all participants will then take in the game between the Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners that begins at 12:10 PM.
The on-field program is created and produced by WKYC-Channel 3 Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling. Kling, along with meteorologists Hollie Giangrecco and Greg Dee will do demonstrations and give explanations on the special relationship that weather has with the game of baseball.
Of course, Indians mascot Slider will be there along with the rest of the Indians squad.
Tickets are available at a reduced rate for school groups in attendance. Tickets include the pre-game Weather Education Day program as well as seats for the game.
Lunch packages are also available. All homeschool and non-traditional school participants are also offered a reduced rate.
