CLEVELAND (WJW) – Cleveland Guardians fans now have one last chance to pick up their Progressive Field bricks this fall.
Fans who bought a brick paver in the 1990s to help fund the construction of the Bob Feller statue were invited to Progressive Field in the spring to claim the bricks, according to a news release from the Cleveland Guardians.
All the bricks were removed from Gateway Plaza, which has been repaved. But according to the release, all remaining bricks have been inventoried and relocated.
“We heard clearly from our fans over these last few months and recognize there are still many passionate fans seeking to reunite with their bricks, and the memories that come with them,” the release said.
To take part in the final brick pick up, fans who still would like to claim a brick are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Sept. 29, with information including:
- The inscription on your brick
- Phone number
- Email address
Fans will then be sent additional information about the brick pick-up date and location.
According to the release, this is the very last opportunity that fans will have to pick up their brick pavers due to renovations and construction that are planned to start at the end of the 2023 season, according to the release.
“Any unclaimed pavers will be disposed of after the final pick update,” the release said.
