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.
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
Ticket Prices Single game ticket prices will be as follows $10 bleacher seats $17 upper reserved $30 baseline seats $60 behind home plate $500 suites
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.
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.
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.
Management Keys We want winning men and personalities working in our organization. We will run a clean franchise and want men of high character. We believe we have the ownership and management in place to restore the Indians back to the top of the standings.
Ownership The Indians are owned by Larry Dolan, who bought the team for $323 million in 2000
Management The General Manager of the Indians is Chris Antonetti The President of Baseball Operations is Mark Shapiro
Management The Cleveland Indians are coached by Manny Acta We like what he brings to the table because he is known best for developing young talent, something the Indians are rich in.
These are our most marketable players, along with ticket plans that go along with them.
