Eric Wedge is named the manager of the Cleveland Indians.
Wedge had posted four consecutive winning seasons out of five total as a minor league manager in the Indians organization. At the age of 34, he became the youngest manager in Major League history who was not also on the team’s active roster. Two of the players on the Cleveland roster heading in to 2003, Ellis Burks and Omar Vizquel, were both older than their new manager.
