Countdown to Indians’ 2020 Opening Day – 54

February 1, 2020 |

Baseball takes little time off in between seasons, so neither can we. Follow along at Did the Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to March 26, when the Cleveland Indians host the Detroit Tigers for game one of the 2020 season. – BT

Countdown to Opening Day – 54 days

The number 54 has had a tendency of being a short-term numerical destination for Cleveland Indians players, with few lasting more than a couple of seasons in the digits and fewer still surviving long stints with the club.

Similar can be said for last year’s number 54, reliever Hunter Wood, who switched numbers in the offseason to 44 (Logan Allen, who wore the number 53 temporarily for the Indians in 2019, will take on 54 in his second season with the organization). Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 55 days

The pressure was on Roberto Perez for the 2019 season when the team traded mainstay and All-Star backstop Yan Gomes in November of 2018. To the credit of the Cleveland Indians’ front office, Perez lived up to all expectations and showed himself as a worthy full-time catcher at the Major League level. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 56 days

The number 56 has seen plenty of usage in Cleveland Indians history, but oftentimes, it showed up on the backs of men who spent little time in town and bounced all around during their professional careers. Given that fact, it seems fitting that the first player to claim the digits as his own in both Indians and Major League history earned the moniker “Suitcase Bob” because of being a frequently relocated player in the golden days of baseball.

Countdown to Opening Day – 60 days

As might be expected, the number 60 has not seen much use in the history of the Cleveland Indians. Believed to be worn for the first time in game action in 1988 by Rod Allen in just a handful of games, the number has seen minimal trips back to the field since on the back of a player. Of the five former players to wear the number, only Jhonny Peralta and Bill Selby wore it long enough to have more than a few cups of coffee with the club (and in both cases, the player switched to a far more typical number for the diamond in their next season).

Nearly a year ago, Nick Wittgren’s baseball career took an unexpected turn when the Miami Marlins designated him for assignment after working each of the previous three seasons in regular duty in the team’s bullpen. On February 4, he was dealt to Cleveland for fellow pitcher Jordan Milbrath. Read More

While not necessarily a number one would expect to see on the diamond, 63 has had some good years on the shores of Cleveland. Six different men have worn it during a Major League game while representing the Indians, including left-handed reliever Josh Smith a season ago. Read More

When asked to recall Tom Kramer, a fair number of Cleveland Indians fans are going to draw a blank. Those slightly more in tune with some bad Indians teams in the early 1990’s may remember a gem that he threw on May 24, 1993, against the Texas Rangers, when his stat sheet had just one blemish that kept him from the history books.

It came courtesy of an old friend of the feather. Read More

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.

While that has been largely the case in the history of the Indians franchise, the team did employ a rare exception to that rule in 2019 when Yasiel Puig joined the club. Read More
