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...
After starring and leading the Cleveland Indians to their first World Championship in 28 years, shortstop-manager Lou Boudreau is given a two-year contract by the club.
“Old Shufflefoot”, entering his 12th Major League season, is coming off of an MVP year in 1948 when he posted career highs in batting average (.355), runs scored (116), hits (199), walks (98), home runs (18),...
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.

CLEVELAND -- Brandon Moss got to meet most of his new teammates for the first time on Friday as most of the Indians are in town for Tribe Fest this weekend.
Moss was acquired from the Athletics on Dec. 8 and wasn't surprised about the trade since it was widely rumored and discussed for five days. Moss got the call that he was traded to Cleveland while undergoing rehab from hip surgery...
This has been a quiet off season for the Cleveland Indians. Even quieter than many others in the past.
In the Tribe’s two biggest moves, the team added a pair of talented players both coming off seasons marred by injury. If starting pitcher Gavin Floyd and power hitting first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss can each remain healthy, the Indians have upgraded themselves tremendously...
While Ty Cobb never played for the Indians, he remains one of the greatest baseball players in history and his biography, Cobb: The Life & Times of the Meanest Man Who Ever Played Baseball by Al Stump is a book that should be read by all. Originally, Stump was commissioned to help Cobb pen his memoirs, an autobiography that would ultimately become My Life in Baseball: The True...

PLAYERS SCHEDULED TO ATTEND
CLEVELAND -- After experiencing the most humbling and frustrating season of his career, Nick Swisher looks like he has come through everything in a better state of health and mind.
Five months after having surgery on both knees, Swisher on Friday said that he has lost 15 pounds and hasn't felt this great since his junior year at Ohio State. How good?
"I feel pretty (bleeping) good...
Bob Feller and Jackie Robinson are elected to the Hall of Fame on their first ballot by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
Feller spent 18 seasons in the Majors with the Cleveland Indians in a span of 21 years after spending three seasons of his prime in the United States Navy during World War II. Rapid Robert was a statistical leader year in and year out in a variety of...
Do to the success of the Indians bullpen in recent seasons, the subject of the greatest Tribe relief corps of all time has been brought up on multiple occasions. Now, we are making it official with the list of the top ten bullpens in Cleveland Indians history. Because bullpens vary in size, only the top six pitchers from each group are included in the analysis. In addition, because...

The roster is taking shape, the Major League positions are being filled, and now the Indians have assigned names to their player development roles throughout the organization. It’s one of the finishing winter steps and brings the organization that much closer to the start of the 2015 season.
This upcoming season, the Indians minor league and player development roles are filled...
The Indians’ win total could very well expand this season. Fans at Progressive Field may see their waistlines do the same.
The team announced Wednesday that it is introducing new food options at the ballpark this year, headlined by the additions of local establishments Melt Bar and Grilled, Barrio, and Sweet Moses. All three will be located in the stadium’s new Right Field...
Sometimes making a change that can be tough to swallow initially can eventually work out for the best. For former Indians reliever Doug Jones, a switch out of the starting rotation ended up turning him into one of the most effective closers that baseball has ever seen.
Jones started his long career as a young starting pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization after being drafted...
A few days ago we took a look at Bill James’ projections for the 2015 Indians and today we will examine the Steamer projections for another look at the Indians’ predicted success. Below are the projections for the Indians’ hitters in 2015, these are condensed a bit for brevity’s sake, you can check out the full projections here.
The Indians will have new managers for three of their lower-level affiliates as the franchise announced the staffs for their minor-league teams for the upcoming season.
Shaun Larkin, who was the hitting coach at Low-A Lake County last season, takes over the managerial reigns while Mark Budzinski moves up to High-A Lynchburg. Travis Fryman will take over at Short-A Mahoning Valley...
The Indians departed Cleveland for St. Louis on Sept. 25 hanging on to a half-game lead in the American League. If ever there was a time to put it away, it would be against the Browns, a fourth-place team that the Indians had been able to handle throughout the year.
The Indians scored three in the first inning, but Ray Caldwell got shelled in the bottom half of the frame, giving...
Most people will probably remember Brandon Moss’ 2014 season in two ways:
Terrible second-half slump
Two-homer wild card game, seemingly out of nowhere
On the surface that’s a fair assessment of how his season went, but it’s also incomplete. A quick look at Moss’ end-of-season stats — .234, 25 HR, 81 RBI — shows a considerable amount of pop, but imagine how awesome...
There is no single event in baseball history quite as exciting as a home run. This is likely, on an emotional level, because of their finality as they leave no doubt the outcome of the play as soon as they clear the fences. It is the ultimate feat of strength as a hitter can do nothing greater in any particular at bat. It is the only way to turn a deficit into a win in a split second...
In 1946, Bob Feller and Satchel Paige were the featured attractions on a barnstorming tour.
Feller was a Cleveland Indians phenom with a blazing fastball, who had just come back from service in the U.S. Navy in World War II. Paige was an ageless wonder who had pitched throughout the Negro Leagues, including Chattanooga, Pittsburgh and Kansas City. Feller said Paige was the best pitcher...

For Baseball Hot Corner’s articles to be recognized by Google, they put a recommendation on all blogs that each post/article should be 300 words or more. That’s usually not a problem for major breaking trades or free agent signing news. But sometimes, there are trades and signings that do happen that are interesting, but might not need the requisite 300 word analysis. Nevertheless...
While other teams around the league, and specifically at the top of the American League Central Division, attempt to replenish their rosters after losing free agents to other gigs around baseball, the Cleveland Indians are nearly unscathed by those no longer under contract with the club.
The Indians may be in small company in returning nearly their entire roster after the completion...
