  • CLEVELAND ECONOMY FEELS THE BOOST OF FIRST-EVER TRIFECTA

              In '97, Cleveland became the first city to ever host
         the NBA All-Star Weekend, the MLB All-Star Game and the
         World Series in the same year.  The Greater Cleveland
         Convention & Visitors Bureau told THE DAILY that the three
         events, including the Indians' nine postseason home games,
         had a direct impact of $121.3M on the region's economy.  The
