Tribe pitching great Mel Harder passes away at the age of 93. Harder played his entire career with the Cleveland Indians. He spent 36 seasons overall with the Indians, as a player from 1928 to 1947 and as one of the game’s most highly regarded pitching coaches from 1949-63. He set franchise records for wins (223), games started (433) and innings pitched (3426-1/3) which were later broken by Bob Feller, and still holds the club record of 582 career games pitched.
