If you were in the neighborhood of Progressive Field in the hour before World Series game time Wednesday night, you probably saw a small plane flyover with a streamer that read: “Trump tried to buy & move the Indians!”
The banner was inspired by a reprinted 2015 Plain Dealer column by Brent Larkin , said Sandy Theis, executive director of ProgressOhio, a Columbus organization that sponsored the airborne message. Larkin had detailed Trump’s failed efforts in the 1980s to buy the team . “The belief back then – and now – is that he would have wasted little or no time moving the team to another city,” Theis said.
In a city that remains highly sensitive to the move of the Browns to Baltimore (and back), the message before Game 2 was that Trump is running for president while the Indians finally – finally! – arrive in a World Series. Too bad the outcome of the game was less inspiring.
