95′ Indians in the News
Sandy Alomar Jr. is one of two known candidates with a shot at managing the Cleveland Indians. Alomar, who is the Indians interim skipper is scheduled to interview with the Indians management on Thursday. The Indians will talk to former Red Sox manager Terry Francona on Friday. At this time those two are the only candidates the team is acknowledging publicly.
Another former Indian, Albert Belle, messaged Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, stating he has emailed Indians President Mark Shapiro with a desire to be considered. Belle, it’s believed was half joking.
The former Indians news does not stop there. Omar Vizquel, one of the most popular Indians in the teams long history is set to play his last game on Wednesday for the Toronto Blue Jays. At that time the future Hall of Famer will finally hang up his cleats at age 45. He has had a remarkable history of longevity and consistency. Vizquel will make sure some former teammates are on hand. Carlos Baerga, Robby Alomar and a few others, including the legendary Luis Aparicio will be flown at Vizquels expense to the game.
Vizquel began his major league career in 1989 at age 22. He has 2876 career hits and won 11 Gold Gloves for his fielding excellence.
