Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 17

For the first time since 2012, the number 17 was back in circulation for Cleveland as free agent addition Yonder Alonso took it to first base with him during 145 contests in what proved to be his lone season as a member of the Indians.

The Tribe got solid and steady production out of the 31-year-old slugger, who was looking to build upon a career season in 2017 when he made his first career All-Star team and set personal bests across the stat sheet while splitting time in the American League West with the Oakland Athletics and the Seattle Mariners. His contract with the Indians allowed him to call Ohio home for the second time in his career, following his stint with the Cincinnati Reds to begin his Major League service time in 2010 and 2011.

Countdown to Opening Day – 18 days

Of the retired numbers in Cleveland Indians history, Mel Harder’s number 18 may be one of the lesser known and more under-appreciated of the bunch to be honored in such a way. It was largely due to Harder’s misfortune of being a Cleveland Indian during some very down years for the club during the 1930s and 1940s and retiring the season before the Tribe took the 1948 World Series.

It may have been enough to cost him a place among the baseball immortals in Cooperstown’s Hall of Fame. Read More

If you ask Clevelanders which player was the best to wear the number 19 while representing the city in a sporting event, chances are you will get a lot of answers naming former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar as their pick.

No knock on Bernie, but he doesn’t hold a candle in comparison to one of the best 19s ever to play the game of baseball, Bob Feller. Read More

Indians Lost Lottery to Land Tom Seaver

The 74-year-old Seaver announced on Thursday, March 7, that he had been diagnosed with dementia and would retire from public life. This story was originally published on July 17, 2012. – BT

Tom Seaver and the Mets seem to go hand-in-hand.

Seaver’s the only player in the Baseball Hall of Fame (where he received the highest percentage of votes, 98.84, on his first ballot) wearing a Mets cap [since joined in 2016 by Mike Piazza – BT]. He was the anchor of the starting rotations of the 1969 World Champion Miracle Mets, and the 1973 team that went from last place in the middle of the season to the seventh game of the World Series, succumbing to the Oakland Athletics.

But Seaver almost debuted with the Indians. Read More

A baseball pioneer passed away in February, when the world lost trailblazer Frank Robinson at the age of 83.

Robinson’s incredible career, which included stops with the Cincinnati Reds, the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the California Angels, and lastly with the Cleveland Indians, had all of the necessary prerequisites required of a Hall of Fame resume. His 21-year playing career included a National League Rookie of the Year award in 1956, an NL Most Valuable Player honor in 1961, a Triple Crown season on the way to an American League MVP award in 1966, 14 trips to the Midsummer Classic, an All-Star Game MVP, a World Series MVP during one of his five trips to the Fall Classic (bringing home two rings in 1966 and 1970), and 586 home runs.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 21

March 7, 2019 |

It’s hard to believe, but we are just three short weeks away from the first pitches of the 2019 Major League Baseball season. Today, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night continue our countdown to Opening Day with the retired number of Bob Lemon and the many faces to also claim it as their own.

Countdown to Opening Day – 21 days

In 1998, Cleveland retired the number 21 in honor of longtime Tribe player Bob Lemon, whose transition from a position player to a quality starting pitcher led to seven trips to the Midsummer Classic, a leading role on the 1948 and 1954 American League champion Indians teams, a no-hitter, and ultimately, a spot in Cooperstown in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

But while Lemon last wore the number on the field as a player with the Indians in 1958, several big names would honor the work that he had done in the jersey with quality careers in a Cleveland uniform in the years after him. Read More
