Join Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to Opening Day!

Countdown to Opening Day – 36

Jesus Aguilar had occupied the number 36 for the Indians for a few cups of coffee over the last three seasons, but he surrendered his claim to the digits when Cleveland designated him for assignment during the offseason. Now a member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization, the 26-year-old slugger will hope that a change of location will be the move that he needed in order to stick in the Major Leagues for a more pronounced length of time.

Production from three-sixes in Indians history has historically been minimal, with Aguilar’s years with the number exceeding the majority of those to wear it before him. A total of 50 players have reportedly worn the number for the Tribe in regular season action, but only a handful have spent more than a few seasons representing it on the field.

One of the best to do so, without argument, was Gaylord Perry, who joined the Indians organization following the 1971 season. Read More

August 15, 2016 |

The colorful and occasionally accused spitballer Gaylord Perry was honored by the San Francisco Giants on Saturday when they unveiled a nine-foot tall bronze statue of the Hall of Famer outside of AT&T Park.

A former two-time Cy Young Award winner, including his first in 1972 with the Cleveland Indians, the 77-year-old Perry entertained the crowd with a speech and, after the statue was revealed, advised those in front of him in the audience to look underneath their seats, where jars of Vaseline had been taped.

Indians Got Better of Giants, Dealing Sudden Sam for Gaylord Perry

December 2, 2015 |

When the Indians dealt Sudden Sam McDowell for Gaylord Perry on November 29, 1971, it was seen as a wise move for both teams.

The Giants were coming off a division title, and needed to upgrade its pitching staff. McDowell, who had pitched his entire career in the American League at that point, would serve as a perfect complement for Juan Marichal. Perry, a solid pitcher (who even then had a reputation as a spitballer) who ate innings, was four years older than McDowell, and to sweeten the deal, the Giants threw in shortstop Frank Duffy.
