The table is being set for a playoff party at Progressive Field.
It's like the good old days in 2007.
The scenario means the field will not be winterized after Wednesday's last home game.
Thousands of hungry fans need playoff party food -- tons of hot dogs, sliders, soda and beer need to be ordered.
And concession workers will have extra paychecks they may not have been counting on.
Communications coordinator Joel Hammond meets with his team to make sure the party is a hit.Practice makes perfect.
That's why Major League Baseball put out what is the Bible or "best practices" for playoff teams to follow.
It's a game plan to make sure the show on the field is memorable for all the right reasons.
The Indians have a mission statement that talks about "positively impacting our community." The playoffs would do that in a very big way.
One this is for sure -- the Indians will be prepared to join the show if and when they make it into the playoffs.
