CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will pay special tribute to a late Cleveland icon known to perform downtown before Indians games.

Maurice Reedus Jr., better known as “Sax Man,” passed away in April 2018 at the age of 65. He became a fan favorite for playing his saxophone near Progressive Field before and after Indians games.

His version of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” will be played on the “Rock Boxes” throughout downtown Cleveland on Monday, April 1 for the first Indians home game of the season.

Recordings will play every hour, on the hour, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to Joe Siebert, the director of "The Sax Man” documentary.

Monday’s game against the Chicago White Sox will be the first home opener since Reedus’ passing. He was honored during the season last year after his death.
