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 – 33 days
The number 33 has a curious place in Indians history. It has been worn by a handful of prolific sluggers, generally outside of their glory years on the diamond, and at other times was on the backs of some of the better pitchers on the roster through the 1960s.
In March, non-roster invitee Robbie Grossman will wear it on the field as he looks to extend his Major League career with a spot somewhere on the Indians roster. He signed a minor league deal with the club in the offseason and is on the outside looking in at a crowded mix for the outfield this season.
