Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 17

It’s hard to believe, but we are less than three weeks away from the first pitches of the 2019 Major League Baseball season. Today, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night continue our countdown to Opening Day. – BT

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 17

For the first time since 2012, the number 17 was back in circulation for Cleveland as free agent addition Yonder Alonso took it to first base with him during 145 contests in what proved to be his lone season as a member of the Indians.

The Tribe got solid and steady production out of the 31-year-old slugger, who was looking to build upon a career season in 2017 when he made his first career All-Star team and set personal bests across the stat sheet while splitting time in the American League West with the Oakland Athletics and the Seattle Mariners. His contract with the Indians allowed him to call Ohio home for the second time in his career, following his stint with the Cincinnati Reds to begin his Major League service time in 2010 and 2011.

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 – 17 days

The number 17 had disappeared from the diamond for Cleveland in recent years, but it is ready to make a big return in 2018.

In recent years, the number had been assigned to manager Terry Francona, who tends to take the field in anything but an Indians jersey (his far more familiar attire has been a sweatshirt or hoodie, neither of which have been emblazoned with his number). In December, it was reported that Tito had switched to the number 77, passing along his 17 to Francisco Mejia, but the young catching propsect instead is back in the number 27, digits he wore while playing with the Class-A Lake County Captains years ago.

Yonder Alonso, the club’s biggest offseason addition, will now wear the 17, a number he wore in Oakland over the last two seasons. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 17

The number 17 has disappeared from the diamond for the Cleveland Indians in recent years, last seen on the back of Shin-Soo Choo in his final season for the club in 2012.

That offseason, the Indians hired manager Terry Francona, who was spotted with the number 47 in his introductory press conference. After Choo was dealt to Cincinnati in a three-team trade that included Arizona, Francona switched over to 17. Unlike other managers around the league, Francona opts for other attire while in the dugout, so his new 17 has been replaced by an Indians hoodie, among other gear. Read More

Indians and Red Sox Have Plenty of Shared Playoff History

October 5, 2016 |

While there may not be much love lost between fans of the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox, the two were, for a long time, almost kindred spirits. The two storied franchises had traveled two distinct paths for a substantial portion of their existences, but both knew far too well the difficulty in bringing home a championship.

Both organizations joined the American League in 1901. Within three years, the Americans knocked off the Pittsburgh Pirates in eight games for the World Series title, backed by the strong pitching of former Cleveland pitcher and future Naps starter Cy Young. There would be five titles in total for the Boston club in its first 18 years of existence, while Cleveland needed its 20th season in 1920 to secure its first postseason trip and the first world championship in franchise history.

Indians starter Dennis Martinez gave it his all on the mound, lasting four and two-thirds scoreless innings. He allowed four hits and walked five in that short 82-pitch span, but somehow escaped harm’s way. Read More
