Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 21

March 8, 2018 |

It is hard to believe, but we are just three short weeks away from the first pitches of the 2018 Major League Baseball season. Today, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night continue our countdown to Opening Day!

Countdown to Opening Day – 21 days

In 1998, Cleveland retired the number 21 in honor of longtime Tribe member Bob Lemon, whose transition from a position player to a quality starting pitcher led to seven trips to the Midsummer Classic, a leading role on the 1948 and 1954 American League champion Indians teams, and ultimately, a spot in Cooperstown in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

But while Lemon last wore the number on the field as a player with the Indians in 1958, several big names would honor the work that he had done in the jersey with quality careers in a Cleveland uniform in the years to come. Read More

Postponed 2016 Opener Brings Back Indians’ Snow-pening Day Memories

April 5, 2016 |

Were you one of the tens of thousands who had headed into downtown Cleveland Monday morning or early afternoon, your eyes set on a pregame meal and maybe a libation or two before helping usher in the 2016 Major League Baseball season at Progressive Field, only to have those dreams squashed shortly before they could become a reality?

If you were, you certainly were not alone. And while it may have provided you with a story or two to tell in the future, that story will pale in comparison to those who endured the last postponement of an Indians Home Opener in the city of Cleveland.

It was Friday, April 6, 2007, and the Indians were set to open the home schedule that season against the Seattle Mariners in a 4:05 PM start. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 21: Catching Up With Mike Hargrove

March 14, 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 – 21 days

The Indians’ #21 jersey will never be worn again, as the team retired the number for their Hall of Fame pitcher, Bob Lemon, in 1998. The last player to actually don the number was pitcher Greg Swindell during the 1991 season, but the last person to wear it was former Tribe manager Mike Hargrove.

Grover wore #21 on his back for all 12 years of his playing career – including the seven he spent in Cleveland – and then again for the first seven and a half years he spent as a manager. He surrendered the number and switched to #30 nearly two decades ago in the middle of the ’98 season when the Indians raised Lemon’s number up into the mezzanine section at Jacobs Field. The uniform switch occurred almost a decade and a half after Hargrove hung up his playing spikes as well. Read More

Cleveland Indians hitting coach Charlie Manuel is announced as the club’s new manager, replacing Mike Hargrove, who was let go after leading the club for parts of nine seasons.

Hargrove posted a 721-591 record during his Indians tenure, leading the team to five consecutive division titles and postseason berths and two American League pennants. The 97-65 Indians team was eliminated by the wild card Boston Red Sox in the American League Division Series after Cleveland jumped out to a 2-0 series lead.

His win total is second best in club history, trailing the 728 wins of Lou Boudreau. Read More
