2019-20 Offseason

Bobblehead Hall to Sell Tribe Hot Dog Dolls

March 26, 2020 | | One Comment

Well, we don’t have Opening Day today. Which is a shame, because it looks lovely out. (OF COURSE a global pandemic would force the cancellation of baseball games for what could have been the nicest opener in years as well as the earliest.)

But at least we have some bobbleheads. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, in partnership with FOCO, has unveiled limited edition bobbleheads of Ketchup, Mustard and Onion. Read More

Baseball may be at a standstill, but the game goes on in some front offices as teams make some minor moves in preparation for the eventual arrival of the 2020 season.

On Thursday, the Cleveland Indians announced five roster moves, optioning pitchers Logan Allen and Scott Moss, plus position players Bobby Bradley, Yu Chang, and Daniel Johnson, to Triple-A Columbus. Read More

MLB Extends Season Delay Until At Least Mid-May

March 16, 2020 |

Last week, the sports world was turned upside down as teams reacted swiftly following the news that NBA player Rudy Gobert had contracted the coronavirus. Leagues responded within days with the postponement or cancellation of their regular seasons, postseasons, tournaments, and other events.

On Monday, the news worsened for baseball fans as Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. followed up last week’s cancellation of the league’s Spring Training and the first two weeks of the 2020 regular season schedule by extending baseball’s absence for another four weeks, following the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to limit activities that gather more than 50 people together while the world attempts to “flatten the curve” regarding the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide.

Countdown to Indians’ 2020 Opening Day – ??

March 13, 2020 |

So…uh…this is a little unprecedented.

With two weeks to go to Opening Day and rampant concerns across not only the sports landscape but the entire world about the spread of the coronavirus, Major League Baseball announced on Thursday that it was following the lead established by the NBA, the NCAA, and countless others by altering the season’s playing schedule.

As they say, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. [To a Mouse, Robert Burns (1785)] Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 14 days

To this day, Larry Doby does not get the credit that he deserves for the doors that he helped open in Major League Baseball, professional sports as a whole, or for the American society over the course of his baseball career with the Cleveland Indians and others.

The Indians honored his efforts on the field by retiring his number 14 on July 3, 1994, making him the fifth player (Bob Feller, Lou Boudreau, Earl Averill, Mel Harder) recognized by the club in such a manner. The ceremony came almost 47 years to the date of his first game in a Cleveland Indians uniform. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 15 days

On December 6, 1989, the Cleveland Indians made the franchise-altering decision to trade away star outfielder Joe Carter less than a year before he was set to hit the open market in free agency. After it became clear that Carter was tempted to see what his financial worth would be and that he was not interested in any offers made by the Tribe front office, he was dealt to the San Diego Padres for a package of players.

Two of those players would play significant roles in the Indian uprising of the 1990s, one that Carter was supposed to be a part of during the ill-fated 1987 Sports Illustrated cover jinx season and the years to follow. Read More

This spring, Indians third base coach Mike Sarbaugh began his eighth season working as part of manager Terry Francona’s coaching staff while representing the number 16 for the club. It kicked off his 31st season of work as a member of the organization, where he has served as a player, a coach, or a manager. Read More

Perfect Storm Leaves Seats Available for Opener

March 10, 2020 |

If you’re a Tribe fan of a certain age, you remember the games being broadcast on Channel 43. You also remember the broadcasters intoning before the game, looking out over acres of empty stands, “Plenty of good seats are available.”

I got an email today – a week after Opening Day tickets went on sale – about how seats still remain. That’s almost unheard of. There are a lot of people who believe the game will ultimately sell out, although if you’d asked me last week – before we found out that three cases of coronavirus were confirmed in Cuyahoga County – I probably would have too; now I’m not so sure.

A pair of utility men donned the number 17 for the Indians during the 2019 season. Both were new faces to the ball club last year looking for a chance to stick, but both whiffed and are no longer with the organization. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 18 days

Of the retired numbers in Cleveland Indians history, Mel Harder’s number 18 may be one of the lesser known and more under-appreciated of the bunch to be honored in such a way. It was largely due to Harder’s misfortune of being a Cleveland Indian during some very down years for the club during the 1930s and 1940s and retiring the season before the Tribe took the 1948 World Series.

It may have been enough to cost him a place among the baseball immortals in Cooperstown’s Hall of Fame. Read More

If you ask Clevelanders which player was the best to wear the number 19 while representing the city in a sporting event, chances are you will get a lot of answers naming former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar as their pick.

No knock on Bernie, but he doesn’t hold a candle in comparison to one of the best 19s ever to play the game of baseball, Bob Feller. Read More
