John Adams has been faithfully banging his drum in the bleachers since approximately 1932. (Or, to be more specific, August 24, 1973.)
How many games has he tomahawked his way through? It will be 3000 on Saturday, a day on which the Tribe will honor their most recognizable fan with a special ceremony which will include an Adams-led drumline before the game and free tickets to anyone who brings a drum to participate.. Kudos to the Wahoos for their imagination on this one.
Details after the jump.
