Is it Time for Another All-Star Game in Cleveland?

No Major League city with just one team has hosted an All-Star Game as many times as Cleveland has. The Indians are one of four teams to have hosted five Midsummer Classics: four at Municipal Stadium and one at Jacobs Field, in 1997. (St. Louis has hosted five All-Star Games, but one of them was by the Browns, even though they shared Sportsman’s Park with the Cardinals.) And of...

Today in Tribe History: December 6, 1989

The Cleveland Indians, fresh off of a disappointing sixth place 73-89 finish, trade their best offensive weapon, Joe Carter, to the San Diego Padres for Sandy Alomar, Carlos Baerga, and Chris James. Carter is entering the final year of his contract and appeared willing to depart the club for free agency. He played in all 162 games of the season, but hit for his lowest average (.243...

Alomar Lives Up to Hype with Rookie of the Year Award, Becomes Tribe Mainstay

He was the scion of a baseball family. But being stuck behind another Rookie of the Year made him expendable. So Sandy Alomar Jr. left San Diego for Cleveland. The trade jump-started the Indians’ dynasty of the 1990s, and Alomar bore early fruit, becoming the Indians’ first Rookie of the Year since Joe Charboneau a decade earlier. But unlike Super Joe, who flamed out quickly...

Lofton, Ramirez Lost Rookie of the Year but Eclipsed Winners

In 1990, Sandy Alomar was named Rookie of the Year. He could have been the first of three Rookie of the Year winners in Cleveland over the next five years. Instead, he was followed by two Indians runners-up – both of whom went on to careers that eclipsed their years’ winners. Kenny Lofton was a September callup for the Houston Astros in 1991, but in that off-season, the Astros...

Baseball's Band of Brothers

Baseball has more family ties than any other professional sport and has always been centered around the family dynamic. Whether you attended your first ball game with your father, or played catch in the backyard with your brothers, America's favorite pastime has remained a deep-rooted family affair.  Since the beginning of the league, hundreds of sets of siblings have continued...

How Long Can the Tribe Hold on to Sandy?

He came to Cleveland in a blockbuster trade, played the bulk of his career here as part of those great teams in the 1990s, and the entirety of his coaching and managing career was here. But as another Indians season ends, you can’t help but wonder: How long can Sandy Alomar Jr. stay with the Indians? Almost since the time he rejoined the Indians coaching staff, he’s been good...

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...

Almonte Could Be Cleveland’s Latest Gem Stolen From Padres

When it comes to trades with the San Diego Padres, the Cleveland Indians have made out pretty well. Before the 1990 season, the Tribe shipped off All-Star outfielder Joe Carter to the Padres for a package that included Sandy Alomar, Jr. and Carlos Baerga. Alomar and Baerga went on to become a couple of the cornerstones of the great 1990s Indians teams. Meanwhile, Carter was not long...

Where Have All the Grand Slams Gone?

The Grand Slam is one of the most exciting plays in all of baseball. It is the play that scores the most runs in an instant, the best thing a batter can do at any point in any game. Based on the Indians pitching staff this season, a single grand slam would likely be enough to win any given game, yet they have hit a total of zero this season.

Was Sandy Alomar Jr. overrated or underrated? Depends on who you ask.

Every fan base has a special few players who are held in higher regard than their overall career statistical output might indicate. The shift to harsh quantitative analysis has led to many of these players being “outed” to disprove the former qualitative thoughts of value. Of course, what often is dismissed in these debates is that the qualitative components do have actual...
