Tribe Drummer John Adams Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Boom. Boom. Boom. This is the sound of John Adams' drum. Its beat has been echoing at Indians games since August 24, 1973. Happy 40th anniversary!

Adams has now brought his drum to 3,211 games. On Saturday, it not only beat at Progressive Field from the stands, but also the mound. Adams beat his drum before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Incredible. Boom. Boom. Boom.
