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

Countdown to Opening Day – 5 days

Number five on our countdown is one of the handful of players honored in Indians history with a retired number. He was a man who held two very distinct titles during his tenure in Cleveland and several more nicknames for good measure. Whether you called him “Old Shufflefoot”, “Handsome Lou”, “Boy Wonder”, “The Good Kid”, or skipper, Lou Boudreau was one thing in the end – a Hall of Famer.

The Indians will honor Boudreau on August 5th of this season with a statue outside of Progressive Field, where he will be immortalized alongside former teammates Bob Feller and Larry Doby, legendary slugger Jim Thome, and fellow former player-manager Frank Robinson, who will be recognized on May 27.
