Indians' Clinching Game To Be Replayed

SportsTime Ohio is planning a replay of Sunday's game between the Cleveland Indians and the Oakland A's - the win which gave the local Major League Baseball team its shiny, new American League Central title.

The game will air Tuesday starting at 5:30 PM.

One reason STO cites for the replay - the Sunday game aired on WKYC/3, the Cleveland NBC affiliate which is the team's over-air home, instead of on STO.

Quoting the press release:

The Indians clinched the Central Division Title on Sunday and the game aired on WKYC Channel 3. STO will replay it as an instant classic to provide out of market viewers the opportunity to relive the game in its entirety, including the post game celebration.

We don't know if the other over-air out-of-market affiliates carried the game, but we'll assume they did. But there are still many areas of Tribe fandom where they CAN get STO, but can't get an over-air affiliate.

The Indians Radio Network flagship, Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100 Cleveland, has a ton of pictures and sound from the game on its website...

I can't speak for any other part of the state, but I can confirm that WWHO-TV (Chillicothe/Columbus) aired the clinching game Sunday.
