Lemon Defeats Nerves and Nature Before Tigers

April 24, 1948 Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. When you are both, you’re pretty tough to beat. That was the case for Bob Lemon yesterday when he and the Indians defeated the Detroit Tigers 8-2 at Briggs Stadium. For Lemon, it was the first of what he hopes will be many wins this season. Lemon has been asserted the Tribe’s second starter behind Bob Feller. However...

A New View for Harder With Tribe

April 19, 1948 When the Indians take the field tomorrow afternoon to open the 1948 season, Mel Harder will begin the season in the same place he has every year since 1937 – on the bench. However, this year it likely will be a different feeling than he’s ever felt before, yet one he has demonstrated comfort in for years. If number 18 strides to the mound tomorrow, it won’t be...

VAN METER, Iowa (AP) -- Nothing brings former Cleveland Indians star Bob Feller's hometown of Van Meter, Iowa, together quite like Randi Van Rees and her succulent pork tenderloin sandwiches.
