CLEVELAND (AP) Patrick Carney's stomach was as jumpy as when he's on stage in Madison Square Garden before 20,000 fans. ''I'm always nervous,'' he said. Carney, drummer for The Black Keys, the Grammy Award-winning rock duo from Akron, Ohio, calmed himself long enough to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday as the Cleveland Indians opened their 2016 season against the Boston...

Cleveland Indians Home Openers: Stories of snow and futility

It was going so well until 2009. The Cleveland Indians were on a three year home opener victory streak. On top of that, they’d won five of their last seven including wins over Chicago, the Angels, and three over the Twins. From there it was not good for quite a while. The Indians lost five straight home openers. They broke that streak by beating the Twins in 2014, before hitting...

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

(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...

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...
