Jim Bagby

Father and Son Combinations in Indians History

June 21, 2020 |

Baseball and Father’s Day have often gone hand in hand, but this year, the former is nowhere to be found as fathers across the country celebrate the day without the presence of the national pastime.

A total of 240 fathers with Major League Baseball experience have welcomed their own sons into the Show, including 16 fathers who had a pair of sons expand the baseball family tree. Quite a few of those names have spent time in the city of Cleveland during their playing careers.

After the 1920 Championship Season

February 27, 2015 |

The 1920 World Championship was the high mark for the Indians, who had reached baseball’s pinnacle after finishing second in the previous two years. It wouldn’t last.

The Yankees’ purchase of Babe Ruth was a game changer. The speed that people thought was lacking on the team as the season dawned turned out to be unnecessary, as it was more than replaced by power. Ruth ended the season with 54 home runs, and would hit 50 or more in a season four more times, including setting the record of 60 in 1927. With six pennants and three World Series wins in the next decade, the Yankees would become the power of the American League for the better part of the next half-century.
