Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 36 – Gaylord Perry

February 21, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 36 days

Jesus Aguilar occupied the number 36 for the Indians for a few cups of coffee over three seasons from 2014 through 2016, but he surrendered his claim to the digits when Cleveland designated him for assignment during last offseason and he joined up with the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Now, it is Yandy Diaz‘s number and the third baseman finds himself in a similar predicament to Aguilar’s preceding him – playing time is scarce for young players in Cleveland.

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 51 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

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.

Perry Gets a Statue of His Own in San Francisco

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.
