Tribe Stars Shined in Cleveland’s 1954 All-Star Game

July 13, 2019 |

For the 21st time ever, the best of the American and National Leagues met on the diamond for the annual Midsummer Classic and for the second time, the event headed to Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday, July 13, 1954.

The ’54 season had all the makings of being a special year for the Indians and it only seemed fitting that the top club in the American League (Cleveland held a half-game lead over New York with one fewer loss at the break) had the opportunity to host the event for the first time since 1935, when a then-record 69,812 filled the seats along the shores of Lake Erie. It was a star-studded event as All-Star Games tend to be, with 17 of the 55 players and three of six managers/coaches on the collective rosters eventually taking up residence in Cooperstown.

Barring an unexpected last minute change, Greg Allen will be with the Indians in the number 1 as one of a handful of outfielders on the 25-man roster to open the season on Thursday in Minnesota.

Entering his third year, the speedy outfielder (who switched last year from the number 53 to 1) has a chance to make his mark in an uncertain mix at his position. While his center field job was taken by Leonys Martin (picked up last July from Detroit), opportunities in left and right field were both available this offseason after significant departures from the roster at the positions, including regulars Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall. The team had several candidates in camp to consider, but the versatile Allen was able to claim one of the spots on the club. Read More

As a child growing up in Veracruz, Mexico, Roberto “Bobby” Avila played soccer and dreamed of being a bullfighter. As a student, he studied engineering. His later life was spent in politics.

But Avila – called Beto in Spanish-speaking nations but known as Bobby in the United States – was probably most famous as the first really prominent Mexican baseball player. Read More
