Indians to Fans: Show your support, and make it a Tribe Town!

Slider! Slider!

The Cleveland Indians are encouraging area businesses and schools to show their Tribe Pride on Thursday as the team returns home from a road trip in the thick of the playoff hunt.

Companies and schools are encouraged to allow their employees and students to wear Indians gear to show their support for the Tribe, who stand just a half-game out of a potential Wild Card spot in the American League. Texas, Tampa Bay, Baltimore, New York and Kansas City all are still alive in the race.

The Indians already have improved their win total by 14 games over last season, and are approaching the 18-game improvement they made from 2006 to 2007 and the 19-game improvement they made from 1991 to 1992. A playoff berth would be the team's first since 2007, when the Indians advanced to the American League Championship series.

And Tribe center fielder Michael Bourn, among other Indians players, has said how much the fans mean to the players as the playoff push continues.

"That extra man is a good push to have," Bourn said during the team's last homestand. "It gets your blood flowing a little bit. … We try to give them a good show every time they come out."

The Indians finish the home portion of their schedule with six games Thursday-Wednesday, as Houston and the Chicago White Sox come to Cleveland.
