Despite having to patch together their pitching staff after a quick exit from starter Mike Garcia, the Cleveland Indians come just one out away from their first combined no-hitter as they hold off the Chicago White Sox, 2-1, in front of a holiday crowd of 26,842 at Cleveland Stadium. Read More

Big League Sons Who Followed Dads’ Footsteps with the Tribe

June 21, 2020 |

Children of Major Leaguers often get a unique experience and view of the game of baseball from an early age while also being blessed with some choice genes and skill sets that make them all the more prepared to pursue the national pastime as their career of choice.

While plenty of kids of former big leaguers have failed to reach The Show despite giving it their best down on the farm, others have put together lengthy and successful careers as second generation players.

Six father-son tandems (Jim Bagby and Jim Bagby; Earl Averill and Earl Averill Jr.; Tito Francona and Terry Francona; Buddy Bell and David Bell; Dave Duncan and Shelley Duncan; and Cam Carreon and Mark Carreon) have had the privilege of representing the Cleveland Indians organization on the field during their respective careers.

For the first time since 1948, the World Series comes to the city of Cleveland as the Indians, owners of the most wins in baseball this season, host New York but the Giants score early and often in a 6-2 win. Read More

Top All-Star Pitching Performances by the Cleveland Indians

July 12, 2016 |

After several years of being snubbed, and nearly falling short of the American League All-Star team for a third straight year this season (despite statistically deserving consideration), Corey Kluber will finally make his long anticipated debut in the Midsummer Classic on Tuesday night when the AL team takes on the National League squad from Petco Park in San Diego, California.

The 2014 Cy Young winner nearly missed the game altogether after failing to make the initial roster. An injury to Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marco Estrada got him a ticket to the game and AL manager Ned Yost has tabbed Kluber to take the mound second as the league looks to lock up home field advantage in the World Series.

His fellow starting rotation member, Danny Salazar, was selected to the team last Tuesday, but he has since bowed out of the game to rest his sore right elbow and was replaced by Chicago left-hander Jose Quintana. Indians teammate Francisco Lindor will come off of the bench for the AL at some point in the contest.

The All-Star honors were the first in the careers of all three Indians players. Read More

Cleveland Indians’ Top All-Star Performances

July 13, 2014 | | One Comment

On Tuesday, Major League Baseball will conduct its 85th All-Star Game, this one taking place for the first time at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Cleveland Indians have been well represented over the years in the exhibition, first started in 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The Indians had three players on that first American League roster – pitchers Wes Ferrell and Oral Hildebrand and outfielder Earl Averill. Neither pitcher made it into the game for AL manager Connie Mack, but Averill entered the game as a pinch-hitter for pitcher General Crowder in the bottom of the sixth and delivered an RBI-single to score shortstop Joe Cronin with the final run of a 4-2 AL victory.

Averill would make six straight All-Star teams, but his Indians record for most All-Star appearances in a Cleveland jersey would be short-lived. Bob Feller would string together a total of eight trips to the Midsummer Classic, passing Averill with his appearance during the 1948 season before adding one more in 1950.
