1948 Cleveland Indians weekly rewind

The unofficial first half of the 1948 season is already upon the Tribe, but they stumble into the break with several losses to the seventh-place St. Louis Browns.

Bob Feller irks New York Yankees manager Bucky Harris by deciding to sit out the All-Star Game, but the other four Indians on the roster (Lou Boudreau, Joe Gordon, Ken Keltner, and Bob Lemon) do their part as the American League squad rolls to a victory.

The Indians will now head out on a 15-game road trip through the east coast, with swings through Philadelphia, Washington, New York, and Boston. They start the trip out nicely, taking both games of a Thursday doubleheader with the second-place A’s.
