    One thought on “Glory Days in Tribe Town: The Cleveland Indians and Jacobs Field 1994-1997”

    1. 3.5 starsAnd in case anyone cares, the paperback actually has 333 pages.Ideally, this would be a five star book Grammatical errors unfortunately litter it, which my inner English major cannot seem to ignore It s also written rather choppily, and repeats itself from chapter to chapter, as if it assumes you only pick it up to read a specific chapter and then you re done But if you re reading it the whole way through, it gets a little repetitive My favorite chapters were the ones about building the [...]

    2. For most Cleveland sports fans 1994 1997 was almost like a dream and with the help of Terry Pluto and Tom Hamilton the dream can be relived in the Glory Days in Tribe Town The Cleveland Indians and Jacobs Field 1994 1997 This book is written in three different sections with chapters making up each sections The chapters do not connect to one another so a reader could skip around reading the chapters that they find most interesting first My favorite chapters come at the end of each section entitle [...]

    3. Wanted so much to love this book as much as I love Tom It started entertainingly and reminded me of the joy of those years However, the poor writing of the book quickly distracted from the enjoyment It lacked a flow or structure and was often repetitive even down to the same lines being used in multiple chapters That in addition to fan quotes placed in non corresponding sections and a missing page 326 just left it feeling very sloppy.

    4. I m not a huge sports fan, but even I remember the heady days, from 1994 to 1997, when everyone had Tribe fever After decades of mediocrity, the Cleveland Indians had a new owner, a new stadium, new and promising players and a general feeling of optimism This combination got the Tribe to the World Series twice in 1995 and in 1997 Of course, Cleveland sports luck being what it is, we fell just short of winning the whole enchilada 1997 was especially painful , and a series of bad trades and bad de [...]

    5. I have read all of Terry Pluto s books on the Indians, and this is another winner Anyone who lived through the glory days of the Cleveland Indians will love this book Tom Hamilton, as co author, also added many insider stories from his unique perspective as a Tribe radio announcer that I think will be new to most Tribe fans I waited fifty years to see the great teams of the Indians of the mid and late 90 s, and it is fun to relive those days again through this book Surprisingly, I found a story [...]

    6. The topic is worth the time, particularly for people who lived it the mid 90s in Cleveland or for diehard Tribe fans the world over I had some problem with the writing, however, which seemed a bit helter skelter The stories are worth hearing, the histories worth telling, but in the case of this book, similar statements seemed to be repeated between chapters as if the writer had forgotten he had already written it already This came off as distracting to me Certainly worth a read, but there very w [...]

    7. Great topic One dear to my heart But the writing style seems disjointed and choppy If I didn t care so much about this team I d knock down the rating a bit lower.

    8. Excellent book for any Tribe fan, especially one me who grew up following this team of the 90s Though I consider myself a pretty die hard fan, this book was full of history on the team that I wasn t really aware of Perhaps part of that is due to the fact that much of the history involves business decisions by the front office that I may not have cared about as a 10 year old As an adult, it s fascinating The ground breaking decisions that went into building the Cleveland baseball franchise into s [...]

    9. I really enjoyed reliving the 90s Indians in this book A third of this book is repetition though This book makes me feel the current Indians team is on a similar path as the 90s team.

    10. Being from Cleveland, I m familiar with Terry Pluto from his columns in the Plain Dealer our city newspaper His insights and commentary are always interesting and enlightening This is his second book I ve read reviewed The Comeback being the other and I now have a reference point to his books They are what his columns are a collection of anecdotes and inside information relevant to the subject matter, strung from start to finish.But what works in a newspaper column stumbles in book form Many tim [...]

    11. There so much packed into this book, I don t know where to begin The title pretty much says it all Glory Days in Tribe Town If you have been an Indians baseball fan for any length of time, you know that there were a lot dry deserts without an oasis than there were glory days I was born in the 1950 s and often say I cut my teeth on an Indians baseball, and the love of the game was bred into me But I m still waiting, watching, listening, hoping for that ever elusive championship This book it brou [...]

    12. This book really took me back to the mid 1990s and watching baseball Although I m not from Cleveland or an Indians fan, I remember how good those Indians teams were, especially the 1995 team with players like Albert Belle, Kenny Lofton, Carlos Baerga, Eddie Murray, Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, Sandy Alomar and Omar Visquel to just name a few The book has a chapter for each of the main players on the 1995 team and also talks about how bad the Indians were from 1954 to 1994 It also talks about the ol [...]

    13. Longtime columnist Pluto and longtime announcer Hamilton collaborate on a wonderful book detailing the glory years of the Cleveland Indians It is a fun trip down memory lane for one who lived through it and a great way for those too young to fully appreciate that time to get a glimpse into a special time in Cleveland sports that will not be repeated.The structure of the book is outstanding Chapters mainly deal with individual personalities players and management providing depth about their part [...]

    14. A fun read about the juggernaut Cleveland teams of the mid 90s The Cleveland sports pecking order is Browns, then Cavs, then Tribe, so for baseball to sell out every game for 6 years in a town that is now consistently in the bottom 5 in MLB attendance tells you how much they really captured the collective attention of Northeast Ohio with a ridiculously talented offensive squad Like the Tampa Bay Rays of late, the 49ers of a few years ago, and the Phoenix Suns of the Steve Nash era, it s a shame [...]

    15. An excellent book about the latest greatest era of Indians baseball, 1994 1997 Terry Pluto is THE Cleveland sports writer, and this book, co written by Tribe radio personality Tom Hamilton, shows us why Great individual chapters on all the key players Jim Thome, Omar Vizquel, Kenny Lofton, Sandy Alomar , and added insights from fans make for a great book My only beef, I wish it were a little longer Maybe a chapter specifically on the 1995 and 1997 games But it s a small beef in a great read.

    16. If you, a friend or a family member is an Indians fan experienced firsthand the teams Renaissance of the 1990 s You will really enjoy this book Great gift A behind the scenes and back round of all the key players on and off the field that opened up Jacobs field in 1994 focusing mostly through the 1997 season and the eventual sale of the team Really easy read Hope there is to come from Tom Terry I actually got to meet them at a book signing in November and both of them were than kind generous B [...]

    17. Ah, I remember these days well How going to a Cleveland Indians game was a legit reason for getting out of work or school Every single day was like a baseball holiday It was pretty cool to have like a behind the scenes look at some of the players and their lives How some of the big names in this bookjust kind of disappeared Albert Belle, Jared Wright, Manny Ramirezey did their thing in Cleveland, then left and pretty much disappeared in the shadows If you were around for this explosive momement [...]

    18. A fantastic account of the glory days of the 90s Cleveland Indians Cleveland was such a baseball town in those days far than I ve ever seen San Francisco, despite the World Series wins Baseball was everywhere, on everything, in everything Indians posters were all over the school, bumper stickers and antenna toppers on every car, Indians appeal on every person When you went to a game, you were guaranteed to see half a dozen friends and you went to games twice a month I miss that, and this book m [...]

    19. I m always a fan of Terry Pluto s writing, especially regarding the Indians The 90s were indeed the Glory Days for Tribe fans, whether they were new to the team or had lived through the many years of suffering only a Cleveland sports fan could understand Throw in Tom Hamilton, who s voice is as synonymous with Cleveland baseball as Pluto s writing is, and you get the perfect memoir of a time when Cleveland was a Tribe town instead of a Browns town.

    20. This was an average book about a great story I enjoyed being taken back to the glory days for the Cleveland Indians which, for a big fan like me, were huge days of fun and city pride This books covers a number of stories about those days in the form of various chapters dedicated to different subjects It s not a chronology but stories on various topics which concerned these years for the Tribe Written by Terry Pluto with minimal help from Tom Hamilton.

    21. Many of my best memories as a kid revolve around the Tribe and those 6 7 glory years of the 90 s Alomar hitting that home run off Rivera in 1997, my dad surprising me with tickets to games 3 and 4 This book was amazing, brought a tear to my eye This was my youth and this was the best I ve been able to remember it in a long long time

    22. This is essential reading for any Indians fan I thoroughly enjoyed this walk down memory lane Terry Pluto always brings such a great perspective to Cleveland sports because he is optimistic, but realistic as well He avoids the bitter cynicism that is prevalent in so much of the Cleveland sports consciousness.

    23. Great book for all Tribe fans I was 4 7 years old when the events of this book took place and was a huge Tribe fan as a kid This really brought back some amazing memories and helped me understand things that I couldn t at a young age Terry and Tom Hamilton do an amazing job and during Hamilton s comments, you can really hear that amazing radio voice in your head Go Tribe

    24. Some great memories in this book, along with a lot of information I didn t know or had forgotten I think it could have been shorter or edited better LOTS of repetition from one chapter to another A fun look back and reminder of how magical those years were.

    25. Repetitive and filled with typical baseball platitudes and cliches, not offering a very novel or interesting looking at one of the best assembled teams of my lifetime Padded the book with boring write in stories from Indians fans.

    26. This book brings back so many memories, both glorious and heartbreaking It was the perfect book to read during Spring Training As a bonus, I met Tom Hamilton again while in the midst of reading the book while down at Spring Training I also got to talk to Lonnie Chisenhall about the book

    27. I grew up with the Indians in the 1990s My family had season tickets we split with other families and we were there for some great games I was one of the kids who missed school for the parade following the 1995 season I m still a tribe fan and this book really helped me relive the Glory Days

    28. So much fun to read about those amazing teams in the 1990 s Terry Pluto and Tom Hamilton had some really great stories.

    29. Yes Go Tribe You ll get goosebumps reliving the 90 s lineup and wins I got mine signed by Hammy at Tribefest this year He s the best.

    30. For Tribe fans this is a great read, full of stories that we never knew about the Cleveland Indians during their best run ever Probably a good read for baseball fans in general I liked it.
