The upcoming National Baseball Hall of Fame Class added its first members for 2017 induction on Sunday night as the Today’s Game Era committee announced that two former baseball executives had gained entrance to Cooperstown.

Longtime baseball execs John Schuerholz and Bud Selig were both selected in the 16-vote balloting process. They were two of the ten men up for consideration for the Hall of Fame Class of 2017 and are the first to be selected by the newest of the veteran’s committees established to evaluate those who made contributions to the game of baseball and players who have last played at least 15 seasons ago.

The Today’s Game Era committee focuses on those who made their biggest marks on the game of baseball from 1988 to the present. Four former Indians players were on the ballot this year, including Albert Belle, Orel Hershiser, Harold Baines, and Lou Piniella. They were joined by players Will Clark and Mark McGwire, manager Davey Johnson, and executive George Steinbrenner. Read More

Indians and Red Sox Have Plenty of Shared Playoff History

October 5, 2016 |

While there may not be much love lost between fans of the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox, the two were, for a long time, almost kindred spirits. The two storied franchises had traveled two distinct paths for a substantial portion of their existences, but both knew far too well the difficulty in bringing home a championship.

Both organizations joined the American League in 1901. Within three years, the Americans knocked off the Pittsburgh Pirates in eight games for the World Series title, backed by the strong pitching of former Cleveland pitcher and future Naps starter Cy Young. There would be five titles in total for the Boston club in its first 18 years of existence, while Cleveland needed its 20th season in 1920 to secure its first postseason trip and the first world championship in franchise history.
