The Pronk Is Back!

CLEVELAND, OH - During the fourth inning of Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins, Travis Hafner smashed a home run to right center field. During the radio broadcast Mike Hegan exclaimed "The Pronk Is Back!"

One might assume this is a little premature and probably an example of a broadcaster getting a little ahead of himself until it was also discovered that Matt Underwood made the same pronouncement during the STO broadcast of game. It was then reported that the Progressive Field fans were chanting "Pronk Is Back, Pronk Is Back!". The side of the mezzanine level in right field now reads "Welcome BACK to Pronkville". There is also a billboard on I-90 West as you are coming into Cleveland that proclaims the same. We feel sorry for the Tribe fan base in Cleveland, as it is obvious that this is something that has been weighing heavily on them for some time.
