Leading Off An Incredible Summer: Opening Night In 1995

As the Indians prepare to play their 114th opening night in it’s history, they will do so in the same state they opened the 1995 season: Texas. With big expectations placed upon the club from the media, it’s fitting they start the season in a state where everything is bigger. It is a miracle the 1995 season started to begin with. The season prior was cut short due to a ferocious...

Catching Up With Carlos Baerga

Everybody in Cleveland loves to talk about the 1995 Indians, but nobody lights up when reminiscing like former second baseman Carlos Baerga does. “It was a special time,” Baerga said.  “When you talk about the greatest lineups of all time…that has to be one of them.  You can go (from) base to base…we had the best.” Not only did Baerga’s team have the best talent on...

Tribe Dynasty Began with Joe Carter Deal

Carter was the Tribe’s marquee slugger for the 1980s, hitting 151 dingers for the Tribe from 1984-1989. But he was a free agent after the 1990 season,...
