Former Major League catcher Chris Bando started out just like any other boy who grew up in Northeastern Ohio. The Solon High School alumnus loved sports, played ball with his friends and had a special place in his heart for his hometown teams.
“Cleveland everything was always my favorite,” Bando said. “Cleveland Indians. Cleveland Browns. Cleveland Cavs. When you are born and raised in Cleveland, you are definitely a Cleveland fan through and through.”
Even now, more than two decades after his playing career ended, Bando still holds a special place in his heart for his boyhood favorites.
“Absolutely,” Bando said. “They are the only professional teams that I care about.”
