Orel Hershiser

Hershiser’s Hall Hopes Ride on Today’s Game Era Committee

December 6, 2018 |

Despite a 200-win career over 18 seasons, a Cy Young Award, and a World Series MVP Award, Orel Hershiser did not last long on the Hall of Fame ballot, exiting the process after just two years back in 2007.

This weekend, he will get a second shot, post-BBWAA, as part of the Today’s Game Era balloting, set to be announced from the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday, December 9.

Hershiser’s candidacy is once again up for debate as he finds himself on the Today’s Game Era ballot for the second time in three years. He was previously considered in December of 2016, when he was joined by Harold Baines, Albert Belle, Will Clark, Davey Johnson, Mark McGwire, Lou Piniella, John Schuerholz, Allan H. “Bud” Selig and George Steinbrenner. Schuerholz and Selig were selected as part of the Class of 2017. Baines, Belle, Clark, Johnson, Piniella, and Steinbrenner join Hershiser on this year’s ten-man ballot, with Joe Carter, Lee Smith, and Charlie Manuel joining them. McGwire did not return for this year’s vote. Read More

An honor awaits former Indians pitcher Orel Hershiser in Cleveland this summer.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 55

February 2, 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 – 55 days

Unlike some of the other numbers on our daily countdown thus far, the number 55 has been far more likely to settle into a home on the back of a player in the city of Cleveland than to be used by a short-time player.

Roberto Perez is the current owner of the double-five for the Indians and has laid claim to it for parts of the last four seasons as the only number he has worn during his big league career. Read More
