Countdown to Opening Day – 41 days
The number 41 has not gotten a lot of use in Indians history, but last season marked the first time the number had gone unused since 2003. The last three players to wear the number, however, have left significant marks on the franchise (including a pair of switch-hitting catchers turned first basemen) and one of those players will make his triumphant return home to Cleveland back in the digit for the 2019 season.
The Cleveland Indians (86-75) advance to the World Series for the second time in three seasons as they knock off the American League Wild Card team, the Baltimore Orioles (98-64), by a 1-0 decision in eleven innings at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
