1963 Hall of Fame Inductions had a Cleveland Feel

January 31, 2018 |

This year, the Baseball Hall of Fame came calling for Jim Thome – who’ll go into Cooperstown wearing an Indians cap – and Jack Morris, whose career ended with a brief stint in Cleveland.

It’s not an uncommon occurrence to see two inductees in the same year who have played all or part of their careers with the Indians (prior to this year, it last happened in 2011, with Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven). Rarer still is three inductees from the Indians. That only happened once, in 1937, when Cy Young, Napoleon Lajoie and Tris Speaker were inducted in the second class.

But in 1963, three former players were inducted with ties to Cleveland baseball – all of whom played at League Park.
That year, only the veterans committee voted, and the inductees included Elmer Flick, Sam Rice and John Clarkson. Flick and Rice both played for the Indians, but Clarkson, a posthumous inductee, ended his career more than 70 years earlier with the Cleveland Spiders. Read More
