Swisher now his his own official section at Progressive Field. The section, which is appropriately named the “Brohio” section will give away the famous “Brohio” shirt that Nick Swisher wore during an interview with the MLB Network this spring. The Indians press release invites fans to purchase tickets in advance to receive the popular shirt:
“Fans interested in claiming their residency in “Brohio” at Progressive Field now have the chance on Fridays in Section 117.
Nick Swisher and the Indians will include “Brohio” shirts with the first 100 ticket purchases in Brohio – Section 117 – at remaining Friday night home games at Progressive Field….
Swisher began wearing the shirts – with “Brohio” and aviator sunglasses on the front and “Sup, Bro?” on the back – around the Tribe clubhouse. Fans caught onto the shirts when Swisher wore it on MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” earlier this month with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar.”

Tickets are still available for the last 5 Friday games at Progressive Field. As the Indians continue to vie for a playoff spot, Swisher will do his part on and off the field to create an atmosphere in Cleveland that rivals the 90’s. Swisher, according to most, is baseball’s “foremost bro”. The former Buckeye is “always wanting to bro it down” according to Men’s Journal. Not just sometimes, but always.
Twitter has been literally blowing up with Indians fans wanting to get their hands on a Brohio T shirt. For those, like myself, who can’t make it to a Friday game in Cleveland the million dollar question seems to be why the “Brohio” shirts are not for sale. Seems like the Indians Team Shop would make a fortune.

While fans complain about not being able to buy a shirt, they are forgetting the most important thing. The Indians are a game and a half behind Detroit in the AL Central and are 51-44. But is all the hoopla of being a “bro” getting to Nick Swisher’s head? During the month of June, while Jason Kipnis was on fire, Swisher batted a ridiculous .160 while going 12-75. The off the field “Brohio Fan Section”, and his newborn baby might be all that Swisher can handle. In July, before the All Star Break, Swisher has picked up his game but it is no where near his norm. In July, Swisher is batting .292 while going 11-38. Hopefully the momentum continues as the Indians get rested for a three game series in Minnesota.
And just in case you were keeping track, Vegas odds on the Indians to win the World Series are now 25 to 1.
