June 9, 1967

Reggie Jackson, Kansas City’s 20-year-old first round selection in last year’s draft, stepped into the batter’s box against one of baseball’s finest southpaw hurlers. On this sultry Midwestern afternoon, the left-handed Jackson, fresh from Birmingham, was facing the toughest of tests against McDowell, called by many as the Sandy Koufax of the American League. In

Nats Expect to Trim Trio at First

April 21, 1967

The old vaudeville gag about “Who’s on First?” has a counterpart on the Senators. Three Men on a Horse probably would be a better title for the battle among Bob Chance, Ken Harrleson and Dick Nen for the right to represent the Senators at first base. As C-Day (cutdown) approaches, all three earnest applicants for

April 1, 1967

Willie Horton hit for the cycle before a national television audience in a wild 11-8 extra-inning affair in Cleveland.

Filed under Cleveland Indians
September 20, 1965

The Detroit Tigers defeated the Cleveland Indians, 4-1, in a game marred by a brawl in the sixth inning initiated by an attack by Cleveland’s Pedro Gonzalez on relief pitcher Larry Sherry.

* Fred Whitfield, affectionately known as “Wingy” to his Indian teammates, hurt his back and suddenly became the hottest hitter in the American League. The Tribe first baseman pulled a muscle during infield practice and couldn’t even pick up a bat, let alone swing one, for three days. Manager Birdie Tebbetts rushed Whitfield back into
