Four Former Indians Fall Short on Today’s Game Era Hall of Fame Ballot

December 5, 2016 |

The upcoming National Baseball Hall of Fame Class added its first members for 2017 induction on Sunday night as the Today’s Game Era committee announced that two former baseball executives had gained entrance to Cooperstown.

Longtime baseball execs John Schuerholz and Bud Selig were both selected in the 16-vote balloting process. They were two of the ten men up for consideration for the Hall of Fame Class of 2017 and are the first to be selected by the newest of the veteran’s committees established to evaluate those who made contributions to the game of baseball and players who have last played at least 15 seasons ago.

The Today’s Game Era committee focuses on those who made their biggest marks on the game of baseball from 1988 to the present. Four former Indians players were on the ballot this year, including Albert Belle, Orel Hershiser, Harold Baines, and Lou Piniella. They were joined by players Will Clark and Mark McGwire, manager Davey Johnson, and executive George Steinbrenner. Read More

A History of Cleveland’s World Series Game Ones

October 25, 2016 |

For the sixth time in team history, the Cleveland Indians will play in a Game 1 on the biggest baseball stage of them all – the World Series.

Strange and inconvenient circumstances have prevented the Indians from owning home field advantage in the series in the past, which makes this year’s World Series opener from Progressive Field the first time in club history that they have hosted Game 1 in Cleveland. In that small sample size, there have been three complete games hurled by Indians starters, a controversial call, a walk-off homer, two games decided by one run, and all five games that were decided by three runs or less.

Baseball fans worldwide could ask for nothing more than that kind of excitement in the 2016 Fall Classic as the Indians host the Chicago Cubs in a matchup of the two longest suffering franchises in Major League Baseball today. Working against the Indians is a 1-4 record in starting the first game of the World Series, but all five games have been road contests. Progressive Field has played as friendly confines for the Tribe this year, both during the regular season and in four straight playoff games to start this postseason. Read More
