Brief History
The Cleveland Indians were originally a minor league team. They became a major league team in 1901 when they broke the National Agreement. They were originally called the Bluebirds. The players tried changing the name to Broncos in 1902, but it never caught on. After the local newspaper conducted a write in contest, the team was named the Cleveland Naps. In 1915 the organization asked the newspapers to come up with a new name. They chose Indians.
2015 Prediction
The Drummer
2nd in the Central
John Adams, also known as "the drummer," has played bass drum at nearly every home game since 1973. He is the only fan to have been given his own bobble head.
Chief Wahoo
Chief Wahoo was first introduced in 1947. The designer, Walter Goldbach, later admitted the design was inaccurate as braves have one feather and chiefs have full headdresses.
