Robinson’s Road to Managerial Debut in Cleveland was Rocky

April 7, 2020 |

On April 8, 1975, Cleveland’s Frank Robinson made history, becoming the first African-American manager in Major League Baseball history. On top of that, he capped off his momentous day by homering in his first at bat of the season, doing so on Opening Day in front of 56,715 fans at Municipal Stadium. We look back this time not at the home run of said day, but the circumstances leading up to Robinson’s arrival on Ohio’s north coast. – BT

In 1947, the Cleveland Indians broke the established rule of the time, signing Larry Doby and making him the first African-American ball player in the American League when he stepped on the field on July 5.

In 1974, the Cleveland Indians once again broke free from the established norms in the game of baseball, helping to further integrate professional sports by hiring Frank Robinson as the first African-American manager in Major League Baseball history. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 36 days

On the Cleveland Indians’ website, new reliever A.J. Cole has been assigned the number 36, after formerly being listed in the number 69 prior to being designated for assignment less than a month after the club claimed him off of waivers from the New York Yankees this winter. A non-roster spring training invite for the Tribe, Cole will have a chance to win a spot in the team’s bullpen.

Prior to Cole being assigned the number, Jesus Aguilar occupied 36 for the Indians for a few cups of coffee over three seasons from 2014 through 2016, but he surrendered his claim to the digits when Cleveland designated him for assignment ahead of the 2017 season before turning into a legitimate slugger for the Milwaukee Brewers. Another player with high hopes, but few chances with the Tribe while wearing the same 36, Yandy Diaz has followed a similar path as Aguilar, dumped to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of the three-team trade that sent Edwin Encarnacion to Seattle and both Carlos Santana and Jake Bauers to Cleveland.
