CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Indians showed their support for the students and staff of Chardon High School today at Progressive Field.

The team honored Chardon High during pregame ceremonies with an on-field parade. Then, Chardon Superintendent Joseph Bergant II threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Tribe took on the Miami Marlins.

In addition, the Indians gave each student and staff member four tickets (4,800 total) to today’s game.

The tribute comes nearly three months after 17-year-old T.J. Lane allegedly opened fire inside of Chardon High School, killing three students and wounding two others–one critically.
