Lifelong Cleveland Indians Fan Lives Out Her Dream
FORT MYERS, FL (March 1, 2000) – For Shell Point resident Ann Hermann, it was never too late to fulfill a childhood dream.
In her case, the great American dream involved the great American pastime, baseball. “I was a great baseball fan from my early teens,” says Hermann, an Ohioan who grew up a diehard Cleveland Indians fan. “My grandfather would sometimes pull some strings to get us box seats,” she says. She followed the Tribe through their glory years of the late 1930’s, when she watched in person such legends as pitcher Bob Feller, arguably the greatest Cleveland player ever.
Thus sprouted the dream: to be batgirl for the Cleveland Indians.
