With the race to find the Greatest Spokane Indian of All Time heating up, SWX's Josh Ouellette caught with No. 4 seed Ron Cey over the phone to talk about his time at Avista Stadium with the Indians and his professional career. 

Above is the complete raw interview with Cey. Mobile/App users click here to watch the interview: http://bit.ly/1mhMrnG

Cey was with the Indians during the 1971 season with then AAA manager Tommy Lasorda, who he deafeated in the opening round of SWX's search to find the Indians' best ever. The Penguin went on to be selected to six All-Star teams and win a World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1981, he was also chosen as the World Series MVP that year with the L.A. defeating the New York Yankees in six games.

Cey was also a key cog in the longest tenured infield unit in the history of the big leagues, playing eight and a half seasons with Steve Garvey at first base, Davey Lopes at second base and Bill Russell plugging the hole at shortstop. In the above interview he explains how that cohesiveness helped the Dodgers become so successful in the 1970s up to that World Series win in '81. 

Make sure you listen to the complete interview to find out what being named the Greatest Spokane Indian of All Time would mean to Mr. Cey. 

Currently, Cey is leading Garvey in the final four voting, click here to cast your vote: bit.ly/1kjSUTl
