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

Rosen Recalled After Successful Minor League Season

March 1, 2016 |

September 11, 1948

Al Rosen, the American Association’s batting champion and league’s most valuable rookie, joined the Indians yesterday.

Indians manager Lou Boudreau said he would not hesitate to use Rosen as a pinch-hitter in the Tribe’s stretch run, but he did not expect him or the four other farmhands recalled yesterday to see much serious playing time. Read More

Indians’ Aging Infield Gets a Youthful Boost as Boone is Promoted, Rosen Could Follow Soon

February 20, 2016 |

September 1, 1948

Lou Boudreau, Ken Keltner and Joe Gordon have done a fantastic job holding down the infield-fort this season, as the three premier hitters are all integral cogs in Cleveland’s mighty lineup. The three veterans, however, have an average age of 32 and have shown some signs of tiring as the hot Cleveland sun and the everyday grind of the baseball season has taken its toll on the infielders. Reinforcements are more than welcome for the Indians pennant race, as backup infielder Johnny Berardino has shouldered the entire load all season long.

Enter Ray Boone – or Ike, as he is known to his teammates – the Indians’ young shortstop prospect who will be making his Major League debut just as soon as Boudreau pencils his name in the lineup. Boone was called up to The Show on Wednesday after proving his readiness at AA Oklahoma City this season. Read More

After the Cleveland Indians 1948 Season

March 20, 2014 |

The 1948 World Championship was the crowning moment in Bill Veeck’s career as an owner – and one of the loneliest in his life. Veeck would own another pennant winner, but no other world champion. On Sept. 23, 1949, Veeck … Read More

September 18, 1948

Behind the strong effort of Sam Zoldak on the mound, the Cleveland Indians won a third straight game to sweep the hapless Washington Senators on Saturday afternoon, 10-1.

With the series sweep, the Indians defeated a team they needed to beat and improved to 87-55 on the season. They kept pace with the first place Boston Red Sox, who came from behind to defeat the St. Louis Browns. They picked up a full game on the New York Yankees, who were dealt a 4-3 loss at the hands of Detroit’s Hal Newhouser, shrinking their lead to a half-game on the Indians.

Lemon Wins 20th, Tribe Keeps Pace with Sox; Indians 9, Browns 1

February 15, 2014 |

September 11, 1948

In just his first full season as a starting pitcher, Bob Lemon has asserted himself as the ace of the Indians staff several times, but this afternoon may have been the culmination of his work to transform from a utility player to a star pitcher.

Lemon won his 20th game of the season after a rocky start with control in the game. The Indians plated three early runs and had a six-run outburst to give the Tribe a 9-1 victory and sweep of Saturday’s doubleheader with the St. Louis Browns. It is the Indians’ sixth straight victory. Cleveland battered southpaw Al Gerheauser of St. Louis in his first big league appearance since June. The lefty was just recalled from Toledo yesterday.

Indians manager Lou Boudreau said he would not hesitate to use Rosen as a pinch-hitter in the Tribe’s stretch run, but he did not expect him or the four other farmhands recalled yesterday to see much serious playing time.

The 23-year old Miami, Fla. third baseman who hit .327 for Kansas City this season was in uniform Friday afternoon for the Indians 10-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers, however, he did not play. Rosen is nursing an injured knee and is day-to-day. He should be able to pinch-hit, if called upon.

The win keeps the Tribe on pace with second place New York Yankees who defeated the Washington Senators 6-2 this afternoon. The Yankees will play again this evening, just like the Tribe. Boston plays just one game tonight in Philadelphia.
