How convenient for the sake of our countdown that the Indians’ most recent player to wear the number 65, Zach Plesac, celebrates his 25th birthday 65 days from the first pitches of the 2020 Major League Baseball regular season schedule (the young hurler has since switched his number to 34 for the coming year).

Countdown to Opening Day – 66 days

High numbered jerseys are not always a good sign of long lasting stays in the Major Leagues. Generally, the numbers have landed on the backs of late season call-ups who in turn would either switch numbers the next season, or would struggle to find their way back to The Show.

Countdown to Opening Day – 68

For the first time since 2008, the number 68 was back on the field for the Tribe and on the back of someone who was called upon to make big contributions when the team needed it the most.
