By now, you know the Tribe needs to win just one of the next two games, to advance to the American League Championship Series. And while there are plenty of movie worthy storylines playing out on the field -- from the 22-game win streak during the regular season... to Frankie Lindor's grand slam that stunned the Yankees in game two -- What about the fans who witness that magic happen? What are their stories?

On World Mental Health Day, we hear from the author of a heartbreakingly personal book about mental health treatment in America.

And, we'll see how a Cleveland metal fabricator's work from a century ago has taken center stage at Cleveland Museum of Art's new "jazz age" exhibit.
