Cleveland Fans Rejoice As Tribe Wins Record 22 Consecutive Games

Over the last two years, Cleveland Indians jerseys have been flying off the shelves. Not only did the Indians come inches away from winning the 2017 World Series, the entire city of Cleveland is still riding the momentum set by the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers, who last year ended a citywide 52-year championship drought.

This year, however, the fans are even more excited to rock Cleveland Indians jerseys, and playoffs haven’t even started yet. In fact, the team is doing so well that plenty of new fans are eagerly jumping on the bandwagon.

The Cleveland Indians have, remarkably, won 22 games in a row — a feat that has never been accmplished in the long history of Major League Baseball. The world started to take notice a few days ago when they came close to tying the famous American League record of 20 wins in a row set by the 2002 Oakland Athletics. After the Indians reached 20 wins, they then tied the 1935 MLB record of 21 victories in a row set by the Chicago Cubs all the way back in the Great Depression. After an exciting comeback featuring an extra inning victory over the Kansas City Royals, the Tribe extended their streak to 22. Cleveland finally lost what would’ve been their 23rd victory the following day to the Royals, losing 5 to 4.

But for three weeks in August and September, the Cleveland Indians played unbelievable baseball.

“The only word I can come up with is ‘surreal,’” said Tom Hamilton, the team’s radio play-by-play announcer for the 28th year in a row. “A 10-game winning streak is amazing enough in this day and age when there are so many good teams. But for them to win [22] in a row, to do it when they had to play back-to-back doubleheaders, to do it without Andrew Miller, who is as big a game-changer as there is in any bullpen in baseball, without Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley, speaks volumes to the depth of the organization.”

As of April 2017, for the second season in a row, Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant had the most popular selling jersey across all of Major League Baseball. But that could soon change thanks to Indians players like Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez, and Corey Kluber.

Sure there are custom Dodgers jerseys, Yankees jerseys, and Cubs jerseys that are being donned all over the country, but during this historic run that the Tribe was on, they have surely increased their popularity within the baseball community.
