This Week In Baseball History


Mar 7, 2018

For more than a century, Cleveland's ballclub has called itself the Indians, supposedly to honor, Louis Sockalexis, who signed with the Cleveland Spiders 121 years ago this week to become the first Native American player in the Major Leagues. With the help of a very special guest, comedian and host of The Three Swings Podcast Rhea Butcher (@RheaButcher), Mike and Bill trace Sockalexis's tragic life, the history of the team's name and logo, and why it's important that the logo is being marginalized in 2019.
