A post on the Indians official site announces that the team has removed its address from mailing lists for promotional materials because so many people are now able to simply click on a link and go straight to that page. "This change will help us provide a more personalized experience for our fans who use these channels to learn more about the Indians," said Paul Richards, president of business operations for the Indians.
Richards added that the team still sends out periodic mailings for promotions or special events, but they're not mailed to specific addresses. Instead, they're posted online and any fan can sign up to receive them.
In addition, the Indians have stopped printing season tickets and ticket packages at their sales office on East 6th Street in downtown Cleveland. All remaining inventory has been cancelled. Fans should check back later this spring for updates on re-opening hours and procedures.
The Cleveland Indians are a baseball franchise headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. They play in Major League Baseball's American League's Central Division. The Indians have won two World Series: 1948 and 1950. They are the only major league team to have played all their home games in its city since the institution of the modern stadium in 1920.
The Indians opened the House That Ruth Built on May 16, 2000. The new $120 million ballpark is named after an iconic phrase coined by Charles Ingersoll, one of the first popular speakers of the radio era: "There Is No Substitute for Speed." The park seats 50,000 people with room for more fans on the grass beyond the fence. It is the largest capacity minor league stadium and the fourth largest in the major leagues. The Tribe has been playing home games at Cleveland Stadium since their former home, Municipal Stadium, was demolished in 2001. The club has had considerable success during its time in Cleveland, including five American League pennants and three World Series titles in four decades. The current manager is Chris Woodward who took over from Manny Acta on September 25, 2010.
The Cleveland Browns also play their home games at Cleveland Stadium. However, they are a separate organization from the Indians and neither group has any connection with or interest in the other.

Cleveland was known as the "Indians" before joining the American League in 1901, in honor of its great player, Louis "Chief" Sockalexis. Sockalexis was a native American who joined Cleveland in 1897 and played 94 games in three years, hitting.313 in that time. He died in 1899 at the age of 30 after being hit by a car.
Even though Sockalexis was a great player, the nickname "Indians" had been used by other teams before he came along. In 1871, the first Cleveland team entered the league as members of the National Association, a major league that lasted only one season. The team was owned by Alexander Cartwright, a prominent New York lawyer who also played on the team. When the season ended, the team's owner decided to call it quits because he could not afford to pay the players. However, before the season ended, another group of investors bought the team from Cartwright and continued playing under the "Indians" name.
In 1890, the "Indians" finished last with a record of 44-120. There were no Indian tribes in Ohio so the name "Indians" was already taken. This is why when they started playing again in 1901, they did so in the American League instead of the National League like most other teams.

The front office of a major league team is made up of various administrators that work with the manager and other staff members to manage player contracts, deal with trade requests, etc. The front office is also responsible for the design of logos and uniforms for their teams.
The Indians' front office has changed significantly over the years but remains among the most active in baseball. One of the first tasks given to any new Indian manager was introducing him or her to fans by throwing out the first ball at a game played at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium. This tradition continues today with the person doing so being known as the "Mascot Mayor." In addition to managing a ball game, the Mascot Mayor is also involved in other activities during Memorial Day weekend games including an election for who will get to be the next mascot thrown out there.
The current president of baseball operations for the Indians is Chris Antonetti.
