The Cleveland Guardians hosted a fun, fan-centered activity this past weekend.
Guards Fest took place on Saturday, and dozens of fans came along and spent a great time surrounded by the team’s brightest stars.
The team took a chance to update their followers with a small message and a cool video of the activity.
“Guards Fest was a hit! We can’t wait to welcome you back to Progressive Field in April!” they tweeted.
Guards Fest was a hit!

In the video, kids and adults were able to perform all kinds of activities, from painting, to taking pictures in the form of baseball trading cards, to chatting with their favorite players.
In the video, some of the most popular Guardians were seen spending some time with fans: Jose Ramirez, Tanner Bibee, Myles Straw, Triston McKenzie, the Naylor brothers and others were there to help host the activity.
The team’s mascot, Slider, was also present, and there were musical shows for kids and grown-ups, too.
There were pitching and batting cages, and some Guardians alumni like Rajai Davis were present to talk about their past achievements.
The activity was very much well received by fans, and it comes at a time in which they probably miss baseball a lot.
Spring training is virtually around the corner: pitchers and catchers will report in early-to-mid February, and fans can’t wait.
The Guardians, however, still have some work to do to improve their offense.
The pitching is talented and deep, but certain positions in the defensive alignment and the lineup could use an upgrade.
