Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 54

February 10, 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 players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 54 days

When asked about the number 54, Cleveland Indians fans are probably much more likely to recall the failed mission of the ’54 season, one that saw the Indians win a still club-record 111 games before the dreadful four-game sweep at the hands, arms, bats, and gloves of the New York Giants.

As for the uniform number, it took 69 years before the number 54 would grace a jersey in the long and storied history of the franchise. Read More

1995 Game Recap: Nifty Fifty! Belle Hits Record Milestone in Tribe Victory—Indians 3, Royals 2

September 30, 2015 |

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back September 30, 1995.

MVP. MVP. MVP.

Tribe slugger Albert Belle put a stamp on his incredible season on Saturday afternoon by slugging his 50th homerun of the season in the Indians 3-2 victory over the Royals. The win was the 99th of the season for the Tribe, but Belle stole the headlines by becoming the first player in baseball history with 50 homeruns and 50 doubles in the same season.

To add to the accolades, Belle was the first player since Detroit’s Cecil Fielder hit 51 in 1990. He is 12th player ever and the first Indian to ever accomplish the feat and will end up as the first Indian to lead the league in homers since Rocky Colavito in 1959. His 103 extra base hits make him the first hitter since Stan Musial in 1948 to eclipse the century mark. With just one game to play, Belle will end up pacing the American League in homeruns, doubles, runs, total bases, slugging percentage and extra base hits.

1995 Game Recap: Belle Slam Shows California Who’s the AL’s Boss—Indians 7, Angels 5

July 18, 2015 |

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back July 18, 1995.

Another night at Jacobs Field, another walk-off homerun. This time, however, the feeling was so, so grand.

In a season filled with excitement and late-inning heroics, Albert Belle topped them all on Tuesday night with a walk-off grand slam off Angels closer Lee Smith to give the Indians a 7-5 victory over the California Angels. The heroic slam came two days after Manny Ramirez lit up another one of baseball’s best closers, Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley. The Tribe had trailed 5-3 entering the ninth inning on Tuesday, but got a spark from the top of their batting order and a little bit of help from Lady Luck. Read More

The Greatest Summer Ever: Mark Clark

May 12, 2015 |

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back at player #25 Mark Clark.

In a season of breakout stars like Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome and Jose Mesa, somebody on the 1995 Cleveland Indians had to be a bit of a disappoint and underachieve.  That player was starting pitcher Mark Clark.

In 1994, Clark was on a good pitching staff with a young ace in Charles Nagy, veteran leaders in Dennis Martinez and Jack Morris, and promising up and coming pitchers like Chad Ogea, Albie Lopez, Julian Tavarez and Jason Grimsley.  With so many other good arms, it was surprising to most people that the Indians most consistent starting pitcher was the man that the Indians received from St. Louis on March 31 the previous season in the Mark Whiten trade.  Clark’s breakout ’94 season included an 11-3 record with a 3.82 ERA in 20 games started.  Clark threw 4 complete games with one shutout.  At 26 years old, Clark seemed to be a star pitcher in the making.

After having such great success in 1994, expectations were sky high for Clark and the Indians in 1995.  The Indians obviously did not disappoint, winning their first Central Division championship and making it to the World Series for the first time in 41 years.  For Clark, the season was a bit more of a letdown.
