World Series


The Indians’ season came to a heartbreaking end in game five of the American League Division Series against the Yankees. They lost 5-2, losing three games in a row after leading 2-0 in the series.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the game felt off from the very beginning. The Yankees quickly took a three-run lead. Meanwhile, the Indians kept striking out.

“You could just tell their hitters were pressing,” Pluto said.


The Cleveland Indians home opener yesterday marked the 24th consecutive time the event has sold out at Progressive Field. But the fans expectations for the season are higher after the team nearly won the World Series last year. 

A brass band welcomed fans to the home opener at Progressive Field, where the Tribe lost game seven of the series last season. Maria Contini of Dover says this season’s goal is simple.

There are high expectations for the Cleveland Indians this season, following their World Series run last year. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto reflects on the team and what makes the length of a baseball season special...and important.

It was just a little more than fives month ago the Indians lost the World Series in a dramatic Game 7 against the Chicago Cubs at Progressive Field.

"[Baseball season] starts in the cold weather in April and it ends in the cold weather in November -- if you play long enough," Pluto says. 


For Indians fans who said “wait unit next year” immediately after the team’s World Series loss to the Cubs, the wait is almost over.  The team’s equipment trucks left today for its spring training facility in Goodyear, Arizona.

Dejected Indians fans

For the Cleveland Indians and their fans, once again it’s wait until next year. The team let another World Series title slip away with an 8-to-7 extra-inning loss last night to the Chicago Cubs. WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier was at Progressive Field and talked with fans of both teams about the winning and losing.
