(Indianapolis, IN) September 17th marked a historical moment for the Indianapolis Indians. For the first time in franchise history, the Indianapolis Indians created a one-of-a-kind Hispanic Heritage celebration during the game with the help of Tickets.com.
T.Cares, the Tickets.com community outreach program and Indianapolis Indians Charities (IIC) worked together with La Plaza Inc., the longest-standing Latino nonprofit in Central Indiana to create this one-of-a-kind ¡Pleibol! experience.
The Hispanic Heritage Experience
To support the Hispanic Scholarship Fund for educational programs, social services. and workforce development efforts, IIC proudly presented La Plaza Inc. with an $8,000 check on field during a pregame ceremony. These funds will support student scholarships in $2,000 increments for the next four years.
The game began with an on-field performance by Grupo Folclorico Macehuani, an Indianapolis dance group focused on preserving Mexican culture and traditions through dance and music. Ballet Folklorico Mosaicos performed twice during the game on the dugouts after the third and fifth inning. This Indianapolis-based nonprofit, also based in Mexican culture, has traveled to Chicago, Louisville, Vincennes and beyond for performances.
The La Plaza Inc. families and staff were also featured participants in the Play Ball and Junior Announcer openings, the Victory Field postgame ringing and pre-fireworks ‘Spark for Change’ release.
