About Cleveland Indians
Cleveland Indians Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
The division champs of the last three years are favored to do it again in 2019. The lineup has been led by Carlos Santana and Leonys Martin early at the plate, with Jose Ramirez beginning to break out of an early slump. The starting rotation features Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, Shane Bieber, and Corey Kluber. All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor's return from injury should boost the club. The bullpen, led by Brad Hand and Adam Cimber, ought to be a positive factor.
Lack of depth on this team could be an issue. It could be the rivalry between Cleveland and Minnesota that determines the division.
The Cleveland Indians are one of the charter franchises of the American League and even pre-date the league itself. The Indians are among the four charter American League clubs that remain in the same city in which they were founded, along with Chicago, Boston and Detroit. Over the more than century-long existence of the team, the franchise has had many ups and downs, but has persevered every season and continue to strive for their first World Series title since 1948.
The team plays in the Central Division of the American League. Since joining the Central Division in 1994, the Indians have been perhaps the most successful team in the division. From 1994 to 2008, the Indians claimed the Central Division title seven times and have advanced to the MLB World Series twice. From 1995 until 2001, fan support in Cleveland for the Indians reached unprecedented levels. For 455 straight games, Cleveland Indians tickets sold out for home games, a record that stood until the Boston Red Sox broke it in 2008. In honor of the ticket sell-out streak, the Indians retired the number 455 in 2001.
After a few rebuilding MLB seasons, the Cleveland Indians are looking to return to their winning ways. Prior to the 2013 season, the Indians hired two-time World Series champion manager Terry Francona to manage the ballclub. He will try to turn the team around and return "The Tribe" back to the postseason. In 2016, Francona did exactly what the Indians hired him to do. He led the team to the World Series, but they came up short against the Chicago Cubs in one of the most thrilling World Series in recent memory.

The 2019 Cleveland Indians season is the 119th season for the franchise and 15th season at Progressive Field. This will also be the last season that the Indians use their mascot Chief Wahoo on uniforms or stadium signs. Due to criticism of using a Native American as a mascot the team as replaced the primary cap logo with a “C” and will continue to remove Chief Wahoo from uniforms. He will still be used and license for merchandise in the future. Currently, the Indians are in first place in the AL Central Division – ahead of the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox, and Kansas City Royals. The Indian’s regular season will end on September 30th and then they will hopefully continue on to the postseason. Will this be the year the Indians can break their streak and win their third World Series?
