2001 Cleveland Indians season


Offseason

  • December 28, 2000: Fausto Carmona was signed by the Indians as an amateur free agent.[1]
  • January 9, 2001: Juan González was signed as a free agent by the Indians.[2]

Regular season

  • August 5, 2001: The Impossible Return - Notably, the Indians tied a Major League Baseball record by erasing a 12-run Seattle lead. Thus, despite its relatively low-profile as a regular season match, the game is vividly remembered and beloved around Cleveland today. For Seattle fans, it is not only a source of angst because of the game itself but because, had the Mariners held on, they would have broken the all-time Major League record for most wins in a season, instead of tying the 1906 Chicago Cubs with 116 wins.

The Fans

Retired 2001

The number 455 was honored after the Indians sold out 455 consecutive games between 1995 and 2001, an MLB record at the time, subsequently broken by the Boston Red Sox on September 8, 2008.
