  • 8. How We Will Build Team
    The plan is to keep on developing the young players and make it an emphasis to sign veterans that can fill in and be leaders.
    The thing that most needs to be focused on is the scouting department. Building your team and finding solid prospects throughout the entire draft is what wins championships.
  • 9. Target Market
    Our target market is teens and families
    We plan to market to teens by having unique contests and ticket giveaways over social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter

  • 11. Packaging
    The jersey style will change from tradition color scheme to that same color with an alternate color stripe running down the sides of the jerseys (see examples)
    Hats will remain the same
    Chief Wahoo will remain, because he is such a big part of traditions, but the Indians are going to market him more towards kids and families.

  • 13. Home Jerseys
  • 14. Away Jerseys
  • 15. Alternate Jerseys
  • 16. How this change will relate to the target market
    We want to market ourselves to the high school age kids who have ten dollars in their pocket and are looking for something to spend it on, along with families.
    This is an attempt to look more modern and appealing to the younger crowd.
  • 17. Mission Statement
    The Cleveland Indians will represent the city by their hard work ethic and blue collar mentality. Cleveland deserves a winner and will have one with us.
  • 18. Management Keys

    We believe we have the ownership and management in place to restore the Indians back to the top of the standings.
