February 25, 2018 |

The number 32 had been missing in regular action on the diamond for the Cleveland Indians for three and a half years, until Jay Bruce‘s arrival in Cleveland last August as a significant addition for the club’s postseason push.

Bruce is now gone, returning to the same New York Mets that dealt him last season during the waivers trading period on a three-year contract. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 32

The number 32 has been missing in regular action on the diamond for the Cleveland Indians for the last three years. That could continue on into 2017, as no player currently holds the number as his own with spring training well under way from Goodyear, Arizona.

Pitchers have been the primary wearer of 32 in recent Indians history and the last to do so, Matt Albers in 2013, was no different. Read More

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the greats who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 32 days

In the early 1990’s, the young and talented Cleveland Indians ball club was on the brink of something special. All that they needed after their 1993 season was a couple of veteran leaders to bring all of the pieces of the puzzle together.

“We had said all along that we were going to try to develop our core players and when we felt like we had a chance to contend, we would try to trade for or sign a couple big time free agents that would help us to get over the top and contend,” Indians manager Mike Hargrove said. “We did that when we signed Dennis Martinez and Eddie Murray.” Read More
