Miracle on Ontario Street (1995): Tribe Comes Back on Memorial Day

When the 1994 major league season ended abruptly because of a players’ strike, the White Sox were atop the new American League Central Division, with the Indians just a game back and leading in the new AL wild card. The two teams were expected to continue to contend when the 1995 season picked up, but by the time the Pale Hose made their first visit to Jacobs Field on Memorial...

Memories of The Greatest Summer Ever

I’ll never forget the summer of 1995. I was 13 years old, just about to enter the eighth grade and in love with the Cleveland Indians.  But I wasn’t just some fair-weather fan.  In my mind, I had dealt with the hardships of the bad years, having lived through the late 80’s and early 90’s teams that lost almost all of the time.  I couldn’t stand that it was suddenly sopopular...

Papelbon adding to Nationals’ woes

Remember this guy? Of course, how could Phillie fans forget. Jonathan Papelbon accomplished a lot during his time in Philadelphia. He earned two All-Star selections, compiled an excellent 2.31 ERA over 237.2 innings-pitched, and passed Jose Mesa as the Phillies’ all-time leader in saves with 123. But his abrasive and personality and his willingness to speak the truth without a...

C-Cap Recap: A History of Tribe/Browns “Double Wins”

If it seems nearly impossible to remember another occasion in which the Cleveland Indians and the (expansion era) Cleveland Browns both won home games on the same day, it’s because it had never happened before Sunday afternoon. Yes, that’s right. As rare as Tribe/Browns “double wins” have been over the past 16 years, the “double home win” has been a far rarer thing still...

LaTroy Hawkins takes an unlikely spot in history
