Frozen Faceoff The Newest Chapter In Cleveland Hockey History

January 10, 2012 |

By Vince Guerrieri

On Jan. 15, Ohio State University and the University of Michigan will cap off Cleveland Indians Snow Days with an outdoor hockey game at Progressive Field.

It’s the latest outdoor hockey game – a novelty that attempts to lure casual fans to the game, which started with the “Cold War,” a hockey game in East Lansing, Mich., between Michigan and Michigan State in 2001, which drew more than 74,000 fans, setting a record for the largest attendance for a hockey game. The record is now more than 104,000, set at the University of Michigan in December 2010. The Buckeyes previously played in the Frozen Tundra Hockey Classic, at Lambeau Field in 2006.

Kipnis Excels With Tribe, Raises Expectations For Himself And Team In 2012

January 9, 2012 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

Every budding prospect thinks about the day he makes the big leagues and achieves that first major league base hit.  For the Indians’ Jason Kipnis, his first major league single couldn’t have come at a better time.

“I just told myself on deck, what better time than now would it be to get a hit. It would make up for everything,” said Kipnis, who started slowly once being promoted from AAA-Columbus. “It was also my first at-bat versus a lefty up there. So far, all I had seen were Gavin Floyd and Dan Haren, two guys that live by throwing cutters in, something you don’t see too much in the minors, so a lefty was actually a break for me.”

Offseason Swap Series: Texas Rangers

January 9, 2012 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

The Texas Rangers have made two straight trips to the World Series, only to return home with no trophy. This year, they returned to the Lonestar State without the title and one of the worst heartbreaks in baseball history. If any franchise can relate to the World Series plight of the Rangers, it might be Indians fans, who still can’t shake the visions of that tragic Sunday evening in Miami in 1997.

We were fortunate enough to catch up with Dan Edmonson of Chicken Fried Baseball, a blog covering the Texas Rangers, to talk heartbreak, Yu Darvish and moving ahead.

DTTWLN #1-How do fans perceive the disappointing World Series loss, for the second straight year? The Rangers remind me of the Indians of the mid-90s who were so close. We have Jose Mesa as a scapegoat figure. What is the feeling with the fans?
