Don’t Call It A Comeback!

August 5, 2020 |

Today’s trip down memory lane takes us back to a story published on August 5, 2011, in the infancy stages of the Did The Tribe Win Last Night website by writer Vince Guerrieri on the ten-year anniversary of ‘The Comeback’. – BT

On August 5, 2001, the Indians were playing a nationally-televised Sunday night game on ESPN. They had their work cut out for them, playing a Seattle Mariners team that would go on to win 116 games in the regular season, tying a major league record.

And of course, the Indians laid an egg. Tribe starter Dave Burba gave up seven runs in two innings and change, and was replaced by reliever Mike Bacsik, who gave up five more runs in an eight-run third inning. After three, the Mariners were leading by two touchdowns, 12-0. Jim Thome hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning to make it 12-2, but the Mariners added two more in the fifth to go up 14-2.

Former Indians Have Ties to NCAA’s March Madness

April 3, 2020 |

Global pandemic busted brackets this year as the entire NCAA college basketball tournament was cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus across the globe. The annual “March Madness” tourney was originally scheduled to conclude this weekend in the “Final Four” matchups on Friday, April 4, ahead of the National Championship game Sunday night, April 6.

This year, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night keep the festivities alive as we recall some former Tribesmen to partake in NCAA postseason play. Today’s slightly edited post (due to specific outdated time references in the original) first published on March 17, 2018, by Bob Toth.

The chances may be mighty slim, but a dozen former college basketball players who have played in the yearly March playoff have found later employment following their hoops careers on a big league diamond.
