Cleveland is playing host to the 90th Midsummer Classic, with the annual exhibition kicking off at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, July 9.

The game may not mean as much as it used to with the advent of daily interleague play around the country, and it no longer has bearing on home field advantage for the World Series, but it still remains a great opportunity to watch some of the greats of the game take the field in competitive action.

The Indians will be represented this year by starting first baseman Carlos Santana, reserve infielder Francisco Lindor, and pitchers Shane Bieber and Brad Hand. Read More

With the 90th Midsummer Classic coming to Cleveland on Tuesday, July 9, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look back at some of the other All-Star Games hosted by the city over the years. – BT

Cleveland’s new jewel on the lake hosted baseball’s best and brightest in one gathering in 1997 when the 68th edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game came back to town for the first time since 1981.

Jacobs Field was the site of the Midsummer Classic, hosting the game for the first time since Cleveland set a new All-Star record for the crowd in attendance at Municipal Stadium in 1981. This time, the venue changed and was much smaller (eliminating any sort of record setting numbers through the turnstiles), but the sellout crowd that came out in support of the game was treated to a historic effort from one of its hometown boys.

Countdown to Opening Day – 15 days

On December 6, 1989, the Cleveland Indians made the franchise-altering decision to trade away star outfielder Joe Carter less than a year before he was set to hit the open market in free agency. After it became clear that Carter was tempted to see what his financial worth would be and that he was not interested in any offers made by the Tribe front office, he was dealt to the San Diego Padres for a package of players.

Two of those players would play significant roles in the Indian uprising of the 1990s, one that Carter was supposed to be a part of during the ill-fated 1987 Sports Illustrated cover jinx season and the years to follow. Read More

Sandy Alomar Humbled with Cleveland Sports Lifetime Achievement Award

February 7, 2019 |

Two years ago, Sandy Alomar Jr. presented Mike Hargrove with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Cleveland Sports Awards.

This year, the tables were turned, with Grover and Carlos Baerga – who came with Alomar to the Indians in the trade for Joe Carter that sent the team into the stratosphere in the 1990s – presenting Alomar with the lifetime achievement award. And it was a big difference to Alomar.

“You see how much I’m sweating,” he said in a news conference at the awards in the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Read More
