Relive Tribe's 'glory days' at author event
Do you remember the excitement of the first years of Jacobs Field? Tribe fans had a brand-new ballpark, a team with all-stars at nearly every position, a record sellout streak, and two trips to the World Series.
A new book by Plain Dealer sports columnist Terry Pluto and Indians broadcaster Tom Hamilton takes readers back to those thrilling seasons.
"Glory Days in Tribe Town" is an in-depth look the Cleveland Indians and Jacobs Field from 1994 to 1997. It tells how the ball club snapped a 40-year slump and electrified Northeast Ohio with some of the best baseball in recent memory.
Pluto and Hamilton were there for it all. Their book combines firsthand experience, player interviews, and fans' own stories to bring those glory days back to life.
Pluto and Hamilton will autograph copies of “Glory Days in Tribe Town” on Tuesday, Nov. 25, 7-8 p.m., at Barnes & Noble in Crocker Park.
