100 Years of Cleveland Indians PhotosBook - 2000
Over 240 black and white photographs span 100 years of baseball history in this stunning collection of Indians images. From the days of League Park and Tris Speaker to Jacobs Field and Jim Thome, the famous and forgotten fill these pages and recall the glory of Cleveland baseball. Culled from 16 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of previously unpublished images. Many of the older photographs were locked away in dusty files for decades until appearing here for the first time. Printer's marks were removed and the detail on the images was revealed through careful restoration. Most of the photographs have been reproduced to near their original size to faithfully record what the photographer saw. These photographs record the changing face of baseball through the century by documenting the evolution of equipment, ball parks, uniforms and batting styles. Players, managers, owners and broadcasters -- they're all here, with captions that bring their stories to life. From the glory of the 1920 champions to the agony of 1954 and the team s rebirth at Jacobs Field. From Lajoie to Lofton and beyond.
