KANSAS CITY, Mo.: Justin Masterson has been selected by the Indians as their nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award.
Each major league franchise nominates a player for the award, which is based on a player’s contributions to the game on and off the field.
Fans – who count as one among the selection committee -- can vote for their nominee of choice until Oct. by logging onto ChevyBaseball.com. The winner will be announced during the World Series.
“”On this team, there are a lot of guys who could get the same nomination,’’ Masterson said.
Masterson, who is recovering from a strained oblique, will play catch today from 120 feet then throw a bullpen off the mound Friday.
The sale of tickets for the wild card game and the American League Division Series will go on sale Monday only online.
Fans can log onto Indians.com/2013Postseason and make their purchases. If tickets remain after Monday, fans can buy them online, at the Progressive Field box office or at Indians Teams Shops.
