A Forgotten and Improbable Tribe Comeback

May 7, 2020 |

When thinking of incredible, insurmountable comebacks in the history of Major League Baseball, many fans (and especially Tribe fans) will look to August 5 of 2001, when the 61-48 Indians rallied back from two separate twelve-run deficits to shock the 80-30 Seattle Mariners with a stunning 15-14 extra inning walk-off win at Jacobs Field.

The unbelievable end results were heightened by the fact that both teams were very much in the playoff race and were destined to meet again in October, when the Mariners knocked off the Indians in five games in the American League Division Series after winning a Major League record 116 games (a record which still stands today).

Prior to that Herculean effort against the Mariners, the Indians’ largest home comeback at their gem at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario came on May 7, 1999, when the team used an 18-run barrage over its final three innings at the plate to stun the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 20-11. They accomplished it without Hall of Famer Jim Thome in the lineup, nor Hall worthy (in some eyes) Omar Vizquel, who was out of the lineup nursing a sore quad that had pestered him since mid-April.

The number 23 holds quite a bit of significance in the city of Cleveland, mainly due to the accolades of one of the best to ever wear it, LeBron James.

During the times that James suited up at the arena separated from Progresive Field by the Gateway Plaza, the Cleveland Indians were enjoying the best years of their own 23, Michael Brantley, who left the team via free agency last offseason after spending ten years on the diamond in the number for the Tribe.

With plenty of question marks on the Indians roster heading into the 2019 season, one of the answers that is known is that Brad Hand will take the mound in his number 33 looking to slam the door frequently.

While there is plenty of room for complaints about the Tribe’s lackluster offseason, one filled with the purging of more than a half dozen regular contributors to the lineup over the last few years, the team was forward thinking at the trade deadline last year when the Indians pulled off a trade with the San Diego Padres to bring Hand and Adam Cimber to Cleveland for top prospect Francisco Mejia (who wore 33 for the Tribe during the 2017 season). Knowing the exorbitant price on quality relief arms and with both Cody Allen and Andrew Miller hitting free agency after the 2018 season, the Indians elected to pick up two controllable arms from the Friars at the hefty cost of their top overall prospect.
