Overview

Calling all Tribe fans! This massive collection captures the glory of Indians baseball both on the field and off with tales of Robbie Alomar, Len Barker, Rico Carty, Bob Feller, Ray Fosse, Ken Harrelson, Orel Hershiser, Phil Niekro, Satchel Paige, Gaylord Perry, and more.

In this one-of-a-kind compendium of anecdotes from players, managers, and beat writers, Russell Schneider captures all the magic and passion of Cleveland Indians baseball. Amazing Tales from the Cleveland Indians Dugout is a colorful journey through the history of the franchise. Included are the best memories and stories in the players’ and managers’ own words, as found in Schneider’s Tales from the Tribe Dugout and More Tales from the Tribe Dugout.

Within these pages, fans will chafe at the rivalries, cheer the wins, and challenge the losses both on the road and at home. Max Alvis reveals his most embarrassing moment on the field, Mickey Cochrane orders Harry Eisenstat to intentionally bean a batter, and Doc Edwards groans in agony during the game in which he finally figures out Cal Ripken’s signals to the outfield (the Indians scored ten runs by knowing which pitch was coming and still managed to lose). Featured players include the Alomar brothers, Lou Boudreau, Orel Hershiser, Ralph Kiner, Minnie Minoso, Omar Vizquel, and many other Tribe legends.

This tantalizing offering from Indians expert Russell Schneider will provide hours of entertainment for Indians and baseball fans alike.
