The rebuilding begins

Post by Guest on November 19th 2015, 8:44 pm

I am considering a new name for Cleveland, the franchises minor leagues & the ball parks & maybe the locations of the minor league teams as well. Although I must say, the Barons does have a ring to it.

Here is a quote I found during my research, about the early Cleveland ball team..

"In 1857 baseball games were a daily spectacle in Cleveland's Public Squares. City authorities tried to find an ordinance forbidding it, to the joy of the crowd, they were unsuccessful." 
– Harold Seymour


Did you know the first fully professional team was the Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1869, followed by the Cleveland Forest Citys team that same year on the other side of Ohio. The Forest Citys were not successful, with a 16-35 record over two years (teams played once a week) and the team folded after that. 


Progressive Field (Jacobs Field)
On October 5, 2007, in the eighth inning of a playoff game against the New York Yankees, a swarm of insects believed to be midges from Lake Erie, enveloped the playing field, distracting relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain walked Grady Sizemore, who later scored the tying run on a wild pitch. The incident became known as the "Bug Game". However, this was not the first time the insects plagued Jacobs Field

That does seem correct too, doesn't it. Why does Cleveland evoke dark chit. I've been there a few times, playing in a rock band. Def a rockin town. 

Spiders would make it easy to logo. Reminds me of the band called The Spiders. I actually knew those guys (and one girl) back in the 80s. Out of NYC & a couple of the musicians were from South Africa.

But I think I might go historic. Cleveland Iroquois is on the slate, coz you know, like Indians. One of the minor league teams should be called the Blues so I can put like a guitar logo. What is that IRL, Memphis right.

I have to admit, Michael, your skull logo is one of the best I've seen.

There was a Spiders team in the late 1800's.  My logo is the actual log from the show Sons of Anarchy, who are located in the fictional town of Charming.

I've got a book about the Cleveland Spiders. They were only in existence for one season and even then, played something like their last 40 games on the road because of no support at home. I'll see if I can dig it out and share some tidbits.

Considered one of the worst seasons by a team. Often debated who was worse, them or the 62 Mets. As a Mets fan, I prefer the 62_Mets. We fans are quite proud on how bad they were.

make sure you have a good scouting director - because they influence how you see players.  He looks pretty good from the html reports....

Cleveland Barons were a minor league hockey team for many years. 

Cleveland Spiders were one of the original teams at Cleveland in the 1890s, supposedly named because the players were skinny, spindly.

These are gonna be my new names once Rich allows it.

ML    Cleveland Mirage (CLE)                 John Bunyan Stadium
AAA  Peace Bridge Robins (PBR)            Bridgeway Park
AA    Oklahoma Seneca (OKL)                Chieftain Stadium
A       Toledo Mud Hens (no change)       Picadilly Fields
R       Erie Mohawks (ERI)                        Lake Shore Sports Complex
