Father and Son Combinations in Indians History

June 21, 2020 |

Baseball and Father’s Day have often gone hand in hand, but this year, the former is nowhere to be found as fathers across the country celebrate the day without the presence of the national pastime.

A total of 240 fathers with Major League Baseball experience have welcomed their own sons into the Show, including 16 fathers who had a pair of sons expand the baseball family tree. Quite a few of those names have spent time in the city of Cleveland during their playing careers.

In honor of the holiday, we take a look at the six proud father-son duos to both wear an Indians’ jersey during their times on a Major League diamond (also, this serves as a good piece of Cleveland Indians trivia to boot). Read More

Outfielder Matt Joyce is at Tribe camp this spring with the tough task of filling the very big shoes of the last player to wear the number 24 for the Indians, 6’7” reliever Andrew Miller.

Joyce is off to an inauspicious start of his own, going 0-for-12 to start the spring slate with four strikeouts, one walk, and one run batted in over five games. At Goodyear on a non-roster invitation from his minor league deal signed during the second week of February, Joyce has a chance to fill one of the Indians’ outfield voids, but he will have to show a whole lot more at the plate in order to do so. The 34-year-old is an eleven-year veteran and a former 2011 All-Star for the Tampa Bay Rays who had spent the last two years in Oakland with the A’s. He hit a career-high 25 homers in 2017 there before he was limited to 83 games while hitting .208 a season ago. Read More

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 24 days

For the last year and a half, 6’7” southpaw Andrew Miller, the current resident 24 in a Cleveland Indians uniform, has been one of the more dominant relief pitchers in the game, earning his first two All-Star appearances in that span. Now, the 32-year-old lefty is in the final year of his contract with the Indians, and if he continues to pitch as well as he has over the last few years, he will likely outprice himself from the team’s future.

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the greats who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 24 days

Trying to pick one particular angle to discuss for the number 24 in the history of the Cleveland Indians organization was no easy task.

Grady Sizemore, the longtime fan favorite whose career derailed after injuries finally caught up to the young star who was rarely absent from the lineup in the early days of his Tribe time. Then there was Manny Ramirez, who majestic moonshots and “wow” moments, as well as absent-minded mental errors on the field, are certainly worthy of notice. Current Tribe manager Terry Francona and his pops Tito Francona each wore the number for Cleveland at some point in their Indians career. And you should not forget, but likely have, that Hall of Fame pitcher and 300-game winner Early Wynn also sported a two-four on his back on the mound at Cleveland Stadium during the first nine of his ten years in the city. Even Jeff Heath made notable contributions to the Indians lineup in the 1930s and 1940s. Read More
