Baseball Dads in Cleveland Who Helped Start Family Tradition in MLB

June 21, 2020 |

Baseball has often been been characterized as a father-and-son sport, which may be a bit unfair to all of the baseball moms out there watching, cheering, coaching, and keeping score at little league games across the nation each year.

But given that no woman has played Major League Baseball to date, there is a clear connection for some ball players drawing a direct path from their childhoods to baseball diamonds across the country while pursuing the lucrative careers of the professional baseball player. Read More

October 9, 2015 |

April 20, 1948

The Cleveland Indians started the much-anticipated 1948 season with a decisive 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Browns this afternoon in front of 73,163 fans at Cleveland Municipal Stadium.

Bob Feller, making his sixth opening day start, dazzled the crowd and held the Browns at bay, allowing only two hits and walking two while shutting out St. Louis. He received all the offensive help he would need from his battery mate Jim Hegan, who was 3-for-3 with three RBI, including a two-run home run. Read More

Hegan Family Looms Large in Indians History

April 1, 2014 |

Baseball, it’s said, is a story of fathers and sons. And Major League Baseball has no shortage of multi-generation families. Neither do the Indians.

Jim Bagby Sr. won 30 games for the Indians in 1920, leading them to a World Series win. His son Jim Jr. had a nine-year major league career, including four with the Indians. He was one of the pitchers that ended Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak in 1941. Before becoming the Indians manager, Terry Francona played for the Indians, as did his father Tito.

Jim Hegan was the catcher for the Indians in the 1940s and 1950s. His son Mike also had a major league career, and while it didn’t include any time with the Indians, he spent more than 20 years with the team in his second career as a broadcaster. Mike Hegan, who died on Christmas at the age of 71, will be honored by the Indians with a moment of silence during Opening Day festivities Friday.
