It Took Awhile, But Wynn Finally Got His 300th Victory in a Tribe Uniform

July 13, 2016 |

For the better part of a decade, Early Wynn was a prolific and dependable pitcher, regularly at the top of the list of American League pitchers in wins, strikeouts, starts and innings.

He was a mainstay in the Indians’ rotation for the 1954 team that won 111 games and the pennant, and won the Cy Young Award five years later as he led the White Sox to the American League flag.

But by the fall of 1962, Wynn was running on fumes, but trying to reach what at the time was an elusive milestone: 300 wins. It took him eight tries with two teams, but 53 years ago today, he finally did it. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 24

March 11, 2016 |

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 – 24 days

Trying to pick one particular angle to discuss for the number 24 in the history of the Cleveland Indians organization was no easy task.

Grady Sizemore, the longtime fan favorite whose career derailed after injuries finally caught up to the young star who was rarely absent from the lineup in the early days of his Tribe time. Then there was Manny Ramirez, who majestic moonshots and “wow” moments, as well as absent-minded mental errors on the field, are certainly worthy of notice. Current Tribe manager Terry Francona and his pops Tito Francona each wore the number for Cleveland at some point in their Indians career. And you should not forget, but likely have, that Hall of Fame pitcher and 300-game winner Early Wynn also sported a two-four on his back on the mound at Cleveland Stadium during the first nine of his ten years in the city. Even Jeff Heath made notable contributions to the Indians lineup in the 1930s and 1940s. Read More
