Countdown to Opening Day – 73

Baseball fans who did not grow up watching the Cleveland Indians with a vested interest at the end of the 1990’s and the beginning of the 2000’s may only know Ricardo Rincon as the player heavily sought after by Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane in the dramatized 2011 Hollywood hit, Moneyball.

While Beane did get his man from the Indians for minor leaguer Marshall McDougall at the trade deadline in 2002, it was an earlier trade involving the lefty specialist that left a far more lasting impact on the game of baseball, especially in the city of Cleveland. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 35 – Ben Taylor

February 21, 2019 |

Major League Baseball will kick off the 2019 season with its earliest start ever (excluding international openers) as all 30 teams will take the field on March 28. Follow along with Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down the days until Opening Day 2019. – BT

Countdown to Opening Day – 35 days

Abraham Almonte came to camp a year ago in his familiar 35, the same number that he had worn in his first three seasons with the Indians. He wouldn’t get to keep it, however, as he was designated for assignment at the end of the spring and was selected off of waivers by the Kansas City Royals, preventing him from joining just a handful of players in club history (Wayne Kirby, Enrique Wilson, and Tom Buskey) to wear 35 for more than three years for the Tribe.

Now, 26-year-old right-hander Ben Taylor will see if he gets to keep the number for himself for a second season after appearing in just six games for the Indians last year. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 35

February 22, 2018 |

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 – 35 days

It would appear as though Abraham Almonte will get an opportunity to return to the Indians outfield in 2018 wearing his familiar number 35, something that he has done in more years than just a handful of players in club history. Heading into this season, only Wayne Kirby, Enrique Wilson, and Tom Buskey had spent more than three years in the 35. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 73: Catching Up With Wayne Kirby

January 22, 2016 |

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 – 73 days

Yes, former outfielder Wayne Kirby is on most of the 1994/1995 highlight reels wearing his famous #35, but the now coach for the Baltimore Orioles broke into the Big Leagues with the Indians sporting #73 for 21 games in 1991. No matter the number that was on his back, Kirby always looks back on his time with the Cleveland Indians fondly.

“There’s so many memories,” Kirby said.  “I can’t pin-place just one.” Read More
