The Lamparyk’s, a local family, won last year’s Best Moment with their submission. A video of their reaction to the news of their win is available here.
“We were fortunate enough to attend a couple games during the [Cleveland Indians] 22-game win streak and each game was more amazing and intense than the previous one,” said The Lamparyk Family. “It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a true Indian’s fan.”
In addition to the Best Moment contest, the 2018 Best Moment in Cleveland Sports presented by JACK Cleveland Casino will be a featured award announced during the ceremony portion of the evening.
