Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 24

March 4, 2019 |

Major League Baseball is now less than a month away from the start of the 2019 season, its earliest start ever (excluding international openers). All 30 teams will take the field on March 28 this year. Follow along with Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down the days until Opening Day 2019. – BT

Countdown to Opening Day – 24 days

Outfielder Matt Joyce is at Tribe camp this spring with the tough task of filling the very big shoes of the last player to wear the number 24 for the Indians, 6’7” reliever Andrew Miller.

Joyce is off to an inauspicious start of his own, going 0-for-12 to start the spring slate with four strikeouts, one walk, and one run batted in over five games. At Goodyear on a non-roster invitation from his minor league deal signed during the second week of February, Joyce has a chance to fill one of the Indians’ outfield voids, but he will have to show a whole lot more at the plate in order to do so. The 34-year-old is an eleven-year veteran and a former 2011 All-Star for the Tampa Bay Rays who had spent the last two years in Oakland with the A’s. He hit a career-high 25 homers in 2017 there before he was limited to 83 games while hitting .208 a season ago. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 24

March 5, 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 – 24 days

For the last year and a half, 6’7” southpaw Andrew Miller, the current resident 24 in a Cleveland Indians uniform, has been one of the more dominant relief pitchers in the game, earning his first two All-Star appearances in that span. Now, the 32-year-old lefty is in the final year of his contract with the Indians, and if he continues to pitch as well as he has over the last few years, he will likely outprice himself from the team’s future.

Remembering Bob Feller’s Opening Day No-Hitter

April 16, 2016 |

Many accomplishments in Major League Baseball history have come and gone, to be expected on some level with the 162-game schedule and 30 teams competing on a nightly basis for six months of the year. Yet some records and personal feats have withstood the test of time and somewhat surprisingly, Bob Feller’s Opening Day no-hitter remains one of them.

It was on April 16, 1940, that Feller started the baseball season with the first and only no-hitter in baseball history. Despite 39 Cleveland modern openers before it, the 76 openers that have followed, and years of opportunities in the final few decades of the 1800s by the earliest professional baseball clubs, the mark has yet to be replicated.

Indians and Braves Ready for Game One

March 26, 2016 |

October 6, 1948

The heavily-favored Cleveland Indians will engage the Boston Braves in a seven-game championship battle in the 45th World Series beginning today.

Lou Boudreau’s Indians knocked off the Red Sox in Boston to earn the American League pennant on Monday, clinching the ball club the right to challenge for their second world’s championship.

The Braves, meanwhile, had a much quieter pursuit of the National League pennant. By the middle of June, they claimed the top spot in the league after a slow start to their season. A 20-10 month of June was followed up by a 19-11 July. They strung together a pair of six-game winning streaks in June. They had two separate four-game winning streaks and a five-game run in July. In the two months, Boston outscored their opponents by a 341-255 margin. Read More

For the first time since 1920, the Cleveland Indians are in the World Series. They will take on the National League’s best, the 91-62 Boston Braves, in the 45th World Series.

The Indians were victorious in Boston against the Red Sox on Monday in a one-game playoff for the American League pennant, one day after Bob Feller was unable to secure the title during the regular season. They remain in Massachusetts to begin their pursuit of a world championship at Braves Field against the Braves. 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
