1957 Red Sox outfielder Ted Williams becomes the first American Leaguer to have two three-homer games in one season. The 'Splendid Splinter' drives in five runs, helping Boston to defeat the Indians at Cleveland Stadium, 9-3.
1957 The Indians, in an effort to get more power from their outfield, send Jim Busby to the Orioles in exchange for 28 year-old Dick Williams, who will play only 67 games with the Tribe before being dealt back to Baltimore. As a result of the trade, Roger Maris will move from left to become Cleveland's full-time center fielder.
1975 The Indians deal right-hander Gaylord Perry to the Rangers for three pitchers, Jim Bibby, Jackie Brown, and Rick Waits, along with approximately $100,000. In his three-plus years with Texas, the future Hall of Famer compiles a 48-43 record, posting an ERA of 3.26.
1984 The Indians trade Rick Suttcliffe along with George Frazier and Ron Hassey to the Cubs for Joe Carter, Mel Hall, Don Schulze, and minor league hurler Darryl Banks. After the midseason trade, the 28 year-old right-hander, who will go on to win the NL Cy Young award, posts a 16-1 record for Chicago, leading the team to the NL East flag.
2014 The Northwest League's Spokane Indians, the short-season single-A affiliate of the Rangers, introduce a new home alternate uniform which features the name "S'q'n'i" in lettering across the front of the jersey, along with a character not in the English language. The word, which translates to Spokane in the Salish's native language, will be in addition to a logo created in 2006 that uses local native imagery.
