Petition Seeks to Get Feller Presidential Medal of Freedom

Bob Feller won 266 games for the Indians, including three no-hitters. But he always regarded the biggest victory he contributed to as World War II. Two days after the Japanese bombed the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Feller enlisted in the U.S. Navy – despite having a deferment because of his terminally ill father. Feller served as a chief petty officer on the destroyer USS...

Indians Close in on New Attendance Heights

Sean Brady is a Young Pitcher with Potential

One major thing the Cleveland Indians had going for them last season was a strong pitching staff; specifically, their starting rotation was one of the best in the game. Luckily, that depth doesn’t end with the big league roster. The Indians boast a strong group of pitchers all the way through their minor league system, with some of the strongest having been showcased last season...

Satchel Paige Joins the Indians

Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige was, to be sure, past his prime when the Cleveland Indians signed him in 1948. An icon of the Negro Leagues, Paige reportedly signed on his 42nd birthday, making his major league début two days later. Pitching against the St. Louis Browns, Paige entered the game in the fifth inning—he hurled two innings, allowed two hits, and frustrated the Browns...

2016 Cleveland Indians Preview & Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep

When a team within your division wins the World Series, there is a sense of jealousy and "why not us" seeps into the brain. Out of the 19 matchups in 2015, Kansas City only had a 10-9 edge. The Indians outscored the Royals in those games 90-78. While the division was well out of hand (13.5 game back), Cleveland finished the 2015 season only 4.5 games out of the Wild Card spot. Most...

Old Park, New Tricks: 2016 Renovations

In 2015, Cleveland Indian’s fans were skeptically excited about the new renovations. Being creatures of habit and tradition when talking about the sports teams, change is a scary thing (unless we’re talking about the Browns, but that’s a different matter). The team had big plans to transform our ballpark, and the only recent memory tribe fans had of big changes was when our...
