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

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 17

For the first time since 2012, the number 17 was back in circulation for Cleveland as free agent addition Yonder Alonso took it to first base with him during 145 contests in what proved to be his lone season as a member of the Indians.

The Tribe got solid and steady production out of the 31-year-old slugger, who was looking to build upon a career season in 2017 when he made his first career All-Star team and set personal bests across the stat sheet while splitting time in the American League West with the Oakland Athletics and the Seattle Mariners. His contract with the Indians allowed him to call Ohio home for the second time in his career, following his stint with the Cincinnati Reds to begin his Major League service time in 2010 and 2011.

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 – 17 days

The number 17 had disappeared from the diamond for Cleveland in recent years, but it is ready to make a big return in 2018.

In recent years, the number had been assigned to manager Terry Francona, who tends to take the field in anything but an Indians jersey (his far more familiar attire has been a sweatshirt or hoodie, neither of which have been emblazoned with his number). In December, it was reported that Tito had switched to the number 77, passing along his 17 to Francisco Mejia, but the young catching propsect instead is back in the number 27, digits he wore while playing with the Class-A Lake County Captains years ago.

Yonder Alonso, the club’s biggest offseason addition, will now wear the 17, a number he wore in Oakland over the last two seasons. Read More

The number 17 has disappeared from the diamond for the Cleveland Indians in recent years, last seen on the back of Shin-Soo Choo in his final season for the club in 2012.

That offseason, the Indians hired manager Terry Francona, who was spotted with the number 47 in his introductory press conference. After Choo was dealt to Cincinnati in a three-team trade that included Arizona, Francona switched over to 17. Unlike other managers around the league, Francona opts for other attire while in the dugout, so his new 17 has been replaced by an Indians hoodie, among other gear. Read More
