Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 48 – Travis Hafner

Countdown to Opening Day – 48 days

He may not have been one of the best to wear 48 in Cleveland, but Travis Hafner was one of the better sluggers in the history of baseball to have the number on his back.

Sam McDowell may hold the honor of being the best pitcher and player to wear 48 in Indians history, but Hafner easily claims that title from the offensive side of the game.
