A little bit of cold in the air, construction work all around, and plenty of snow covering the field at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario could not keep the legions of baseball fans in Cleveland from coming to the Indians’ home on Saturday to celebrate life as a Tribe fan.
The third annual Tribe Fest is well under way, with the Friday night VIP session and two of the three weekend...
CLEVELAND -- This weekend's Tribe Fest marked the beginning of looking back at the 1995 American League championship team.
During Saturday's afternoon session Sandy Alomar, Paul Assenmacher, Dennis Martinez and Charles Nagy took part in a roundtable session on the main stage before participating in an autograph session.
The big celebration for the team will be on Fathers' Day weekend...
With Opening Day less than 80 days away, the Cleveland Indians have outfitted fans with a wish list of sorts thanks to the release of their 2015 Promotional Schedule. This year will feature 18 different promotional items including five replica jerseys, four bobbleheads and a Larry Doby replica statue. In addition to celebrating the current roster, the team will also pay homage to...
Cleveland, OH--The Cleveland Indians have released the team's 2015 promotional schedule, which features 18 promotional items including five replica jerseys, four bobbleheads and a Larry Doby replica statue.
The Indians are excited to celebrate the roster's young stars, with bobbleheads featuring Corey Kluber and his 2014 Cy Young award (June 6, courtesy of Sugardale), All-Star and...
He was among the greatest hitting catchers of all-time, played in eight All-Star Games, won six Silver Sluggers and three Gold Gloves and earned some Hall of Fame votes in 2001—his only year on the ballot. He captained the ship of one of the greatest seasons ever assembled and he is a completely forgotten piece of Tribe history.
Wait a second…Lance Parrish played for the Indians...
With the latest crop of Major League Hall of Famers set to be announced later in the day, this will be the last in a series of four making the cases for some Indians greats to be included. All of these players have already missed out on the voting process, but could be considered in the future on the veteran’s ballot, although they are now considered long shots. Today’s version...
The post previously ran on Dec. 22, but it seemed appropriate and timely to re-post with the death of Hank Peters on Sunday. Indians Team President Mark Shapiro released a statement on Sunday. “The Cleveland Indians organization lost a cherished member of the family (Sunday) as former President/General Manager Hank Peters, 90, passed away due to complications of a recent stroke...
Hank Peters, who had two different stints with the Indians and is credited with building the foundation of success the franchise enjoyed in the 1990's, passed away on Sunday after complications from a recent stroke. He was 90.
Peters was first with the Indians as vice-president of player personnel from 1966-71. After serving as the general manager in Baltimore from 1976-87, Peters...
While it appears John Hart is disassembling the Atlanta Braves during the twilight of his career in baseball, he may have seen this playbook almost 25 years ago from a different perspective.
Hart is the new general manager of the Atlanta Braves, left to cut payroll and rid the organization of bad contracts before a new stadium open north of town in 2017. It’s no guarantee the baseball...
With the Winter Meetings over and the offseason at the midway point, we begin a series of looks at how the Indians' rivals in the AL Central have fared:
Last season: 70-92, fifth
Indians vs. Twins last two years: 24-14 including going 11-8 last year.
What They've Accomplished
The Ron Gardenhire era is over after 13 seasons as Paul Molitor takes over as manager. Gardenhire...
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 appears willing to depart the club for free agency. He played in all 162 games of the season, but hit for his lowest average (.243...
It could be argued that the Indians dynasty of the 1990s actually began Dec. 6, 1989.
That day, the Indians finalized a deal with the San Diego Padres, dealing them Joe Carter for Sandy Alomar Jr., Carlos Baerga and Chris James.
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,...
Cleveland Indians catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. is announced as the unanimous winner of the American League Rookie of the Year Award.
Alomar becomes just the third player to be elected by a unanimous vote (Carlton Fisk, Mark McGwire). He hit .290 in his first season in Cleveland with nine home runs and 66 RBI. He was voted to his first of three straight Midsummer Classic starts during...
The 2013 off-season ushered in a new chapter of Cleveland Indians baseball. The 2012 season had ended with the firing of Manny Acta, a paltry, losing record, and Sandy Alomar Jr. closing the season as interim manager. If one thing was clear, it was that something drastic had to be done to keep the team relevant, exciting, and, above all, to get them to win.
Cue Terry Francona.
It can be a little bit of a trick question when considering if Yan Gomes exceeded expectations this past season, especially based on how he did the second half of the 2013 season.
However, when you factor in that this was Gomes first full season as the Indians' starting catcher and that the organization signed him to an extension on Opening Day it is a good starting point, especially...
Cleveland Indians fan favorite infielder Carlos Baerga is born.
Baerga was signed by the San Diego Padres in 1985 and remained with the club in the minors until he was dealt in 1989 with Sandy Alomar and Chris James to the Indians for outfielder Joe Carter. He made his debut as a utility infielder for the team in 1990 as a 21-year-old, hitting .260. By 1992, he was named to the first...
Designated hitter Eddie Murray walks the Indians off a winner in the bottom of the eleventh inning as Cleveland defeats the Atlanta Braves, 7-6, to win their first World Series game since 1948.
The Indians take a 2-1 lead in the first on an RBI-triple from Omar Vizquel and an RBI-groundout from Carlos Baerga off of Atlanta’s John Smoltz. They pad the lead in the third on back-to...
Three runs in the ninth inning are not enough, as the Florida Marlins edge out the Cleveland Indians by an 8-7 final in the last game of the season at Jacobs Field. The Marlins take a 3-2 World Series lead over the Indians as the series returns to Miami.
The Indians score four in the second and third innings to overcome an early two run deficit, thanks to an RBI-single by Sandy Alomar...
The Cleveland Indians knot up their series with the Florida Marlins at two wins a piece with a strong 10-3 victory. It marks the second straight game that the Indians score in double digits after a 14-11 loss in Game 3 of the World Series.
The Indians jump out to an early 6-0 lead after three innings and made the advantage stand up behind a strong showing from rookie right-hander...
CLEVELAND - Unofficially it appears as if the Indians coaching staff will remain intact for 2015.
Darren Wolfson of WTSP TV in the Twin Cities is reporting that Sandy Alomar is out of the running for the Twins managerial opening. Alomar interviewed a couple weeks ago in Minnesota and also interviewed for the Arizona opening that went to Chip Hale.
Paul Molitor and Doug Mientkiewicz...
The Minnesota Twins search for a manager continues, following a season in which they won just 70 games, marking the fourth consecutive season with 70 of fewer wins. Pitching was a downfall, as the Twins ranked 29th in the Major Leagues in ERA. The poor finish resulted in the firing of Ron Gardenhire, who has managed the Twins since 2002. The managerial candidate list, which appeared...

I’ve been thinking a lot about Andrew Friedman’s arrival with the Dodgers, and one of the things that really keeps coming up for me is simply that he’s an outsider to the organization. Ned Colletti had been in charge for so, so long, to the point that not a single current member of the Dodgers played for the team before he arrived. (Although several had been drafted and were...
PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks have chosen Chip Hale as their next manager.
The D-backs plan to announce the hiring at a 2 p.m. press conference that can be seen live on FOX Sports Arizona.
Hale, 49, has served as manager Bob Melvin's bench coach in Oakland the last three seasons after spending the previous two years as the third base coach/infield coach with the New York Mets...
