Today in Tribe History: February 6, 1969

Compiled by Jason Kaminski

Future Cleveland closer Bob Wickman is born in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Wickman was acquired in a trade from Milwaukee during the 2000 season and would serve as the Tribe closer until 2006 when he was dealt to Atlanta mid-season. Wickman was known for some heart-stopping saves during his time in Cleveland but was effective enough to earn 139 saves in his time in Cleveland, good enough to earn the top spot on the club’s all-time saves list.
