This site was founded by myself almost three years ago, and while I contribute most of the articles and information housed here on this site, something that has long been overdue in my book has been to acknowledge all of the other contributors here on the IPI. People that without their help and generousity this site wouldn't be near as complete with the content or have all the extra aesthetic features. It takes time to build "friends" when putting together a group of contributors for a site, and I feel I have been lucky to find this talented group of people to help keep this place active and provide very good commentary, analysis, and other features to complement the scouting reports, articles, and so on I put out.
Information about myself and the IPI can be found in the "About
" link along the top, but this page is dedicated to the many contributors who have made this THE place to go for all of your Cleveland Indians minor league news and analysis, as well as the big league team. This page will be linked along the top of the page for future reference, and I am posting this as a regular article today to bring attention to this page.
Without further ado, here is the information for the rest of the site staff:
Al Ciammaichella: Site Columnist
Al has been an Indians fan since birth, and has followed prospects since his dad took him to see Jim Thome play for the Canton-Akron Indians. He grew up in Aurora Ohio, and walked on the football and baseball team at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA where he was one of the top scout team tight ends in the country and a solid bullpen catcher with an advanced approach. Al currently makes his home in Fairfax, VA where he gets to see the Aeros and K-Tribe several times a year. In addition to loving the Indians, he is a die-hard Browns, Buckeyes and Cavs fan. Al can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, complaints or compliments about his articles. Greg Dew: Site ColumnistGreg can still hear
