is Nickerson Field, which is where the Indians won the 1948 World Series, 4-3, in Game 6 against the Boston Braves of the National League.”

Leave it to Terry Pluto to provide a detail that provides the key context the Tribe’s loss yesterday.

My dad was 25 in 1948.  He’s gone to his reward now, without getting a second chance to watch a World Series win.  I am still waiting, but am optimistic about this core of Indians players being back with more experience (and I hope a re-signed CC –right now they have him only through the end of next year. ) It is a fun, young team that gave Indians fans a great season of play, even if the movie ended the same way it has since 1954.

Congrats to the Red Sox and Red Sox Nation.  I still love Manny from his days with the Tribe the ’90s, and he remains the guy you least like to see at bat in the playoffs.

It will be a wonderful Series,  just not nearly as wonderful as one which had the Tribe opening it at home.
