Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 56

February 1, 2018 |

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 – 56 days

The number 56 has seen plenty of usage in Cleveland Indians history, but oftentimes, it wound up on the backs of men who spent little time in town and bounced all around during their professional careers. Given that fact, it seems fitting that the first player to claim the digits as his own in both Indians and Major League history earned the moniker “Suitcase Bob” because of being a frequently relocated player in the golden days of baseball.

1995 Game Recap: Nifty Fifty! Belle Hits Record Milestone in Tribe Victory—Indians 3, Royals 2

September 30, 2015 |

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back September 30, 1995.

MVP. MVP. MVP.

Tribe slugger Albert Belle put a stamp on his incredible season on Saturday afternoon by slugging his 50th homerun of the season in the Indians 3-2 victory over the Royals. The win was the 99th of the season for the Tribe, but Belle stole the headlines by becoming the first player in baseball history with 50 homeruns and 50 doubles in the same season.

To add to the accolades, Belle was the first player since Detroit’s Cecil Fielder hit 51 in 1990. He is 12th player ever and the first Indian to ever accomplish the feat and will end up as the first Indian to lead the league in homers since Rocky Colavito in 1959. His 103 extra base hits make him the first hitter since Stan Musial in 1948 to eclipse the century mark. With just one game to play, Belle will end up pacing the American League in homeruns, doubles, runs, total bases, slugging percentage and extra base hits.

The Greatest Summer Ever: Alan Embree

May 19, 2015 |

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back at player #23 Alan Embree.

Alan Embree started his Major League career as a September call-up in the 1992 season.  At this time, he was a young, left handed starting pitcher who was coming off of a fantastic year in the minor leagues where he won a combined 17 games with a 2.85 ERA for High-A Kinston and Double-A Canton-Akron.  His big league numbers that September were not as impressive, as the 22 year old Embree struggled through his only four Major League starts with an 0-2 record and a 7.00 ERA.  With being so young and successful in the Minor Leagues, however, Embree had the makings of a solid young starting pitcher.

Embree’s left elbow had other plans in mind.  Embree hurt his throwing elbow playing catch before the 1993 spring camp opened, and this injury sidelined him for almost the entire year.  Embree was able to make one start for Canton-Akron in ’93, and was on the shelf for the rest of the season.
