‘I love Cleveland and I always will’: Colavito Overwhelmed in Return to Town

July 6, 2019 |

Age has caught up with Rocky Colavito.

The dark hair has gone white. He’s fought off cancer, had a quadruple bypass after a heart attack, and lost a leg to complications by diabetes. At his event Friday night at the Keybank State Theater in Playhouse Square, he was wheeled out on stage and helped into a chair.

But the love was still there. Colavito, a fan favorite whose trade to the Tigers incensed his legions of rooters, was subject to a sustained standing ovation when he appeared on stage. And he was just as overjoyed to see the crowd as they were to see him.

As soon as plans were announced for an All-Star Game at Comiskey Park to coincide with the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933, every other city in the major leagues wanted to host one – including Cleveland.

The Indians had a history with all-star contests, holding a benefit game for Addie Joss’ family in 1911 that was then the largest collection of star power on one field. The city’s newly-constructed stadium on the lakefront downtown would also make a perfect venue for the game.

And it did, two years later – but that turned out to be the only major league game played at the stadium that year. Read More
