I am sure most of you have seen this but no matter it is a must to watch over again and again each baseball season.

click watch this movie on the right

Do you remember where you were?

Have the # 9,1 & 2 hitters ever had such a performance?

Just more proof Tom Hamilton is God.

Fixed it Rich, thanks.

Donnie, what am I missing on that link? Doesn't appear to have any Indians related content.

Pretty cool. Too bad it takes longer to make it through that than it did the game.

I guess we must have blown it up. Is this the videogame version of the comeback?

No. It just takes you hitter by hitter through the last couple of innings. You have to hit continue after every hitter to see hte next one, so you can imagine the length when you score 12 runs in 3 innings.

I'm new on these boards, but nonetheless, that was probably the greatest moment of Tribe HIstory.

At least during my lifetime.

INcredible, watching that just made me cry, I'm serious...

I was at home watching it. Despite being very discouraged something told me not to turn it off. It wasn't realistic to espect a comeback, but I'm glad I watched it.

Another great moment in Tribe history was when we spanked the Yankees 22-0. I believe that's still the biggest loss in Yankees history. I'm very proud of that one.

Sorry folks, but Game 1 of the 1995 ALDS against the Red Sox is probably the greatest game in Tribe history for me.....between the Pena walkoff, extra innings, nail-biting moments, and the Alber Belle "right fucking here asshole" as he pointed to his flexed right bicep when Kennedy asked to have his bat checked.

Others up there would be the 1999 Game 1 ALDS against the Red Sox when we finally beat Pedro, winning on a Fryman hit in the bottom of the 9th. Also, the Alomar HR off Rivero in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Yanks. That was a phenominal game as well, and tight the whole way. The 1995 ALCS Game 5 against Seattle, which was a crucial game with the series tied 2-2, Assenmacher comes in and blows Griffey away late, and Thome with the upper deck 2-run homer to win it.

Agreed on the 95 ALDS game 1 consig.

Another great one was IIRC 1997 ALDS v Yankees, game 4 Sandy hits a HR off of Rivera to tie it and send Sandy on a great post season ride to cap off his great regular season which included the All Star game MVP, in his home park to boot.

Another was 1997 ALCS game 3 (and game 6) with Vizquel and Grissom, great ending.

The best was Davey Johnson in the press conference actually had the nerve to say the best team didn't win.

1995 ALCS, game six. The win over the Mariners to go to the WS for tthe first time since '54.

Yeah, a lot of the best games in Tribe history are littered all over the place in the 1995 and 1997 post-season runs. Just some great moments, and incredible games. Hard to believe that all happened for the most part over 10 years ago.

Wish I had the same sense to keep the game on. I was in Tennessee at the time and I had this game circled on my calander as it was the only game I would get to see for a while (ESPN broadcast). After the first few innings I turned it off to watch a movie. As soon as the movie was over and I turned the tv back on, I saw the celebration. I was more mad at myself than I was happy for the comeback.

As for the 22-0 pounding of the yanks, I'll always remember this game as the night my car was stolen. About the only thing that could ruin such a perfect day was to go outside and realize that my car was nowhere to be seen.

I remember somewhere in the 4th or 5th inning of the Seattle comeback saying to myself "it wouldn't surprise me one bit for this to be a 2 run game before it is all over".

One of the best regular season games in their history along with the game against the Blue jays in 95 when we were down like 8-1 and Sorrento hit a grand salami off of Cone to pull out a win, in the Jake IIRC. Then you have that whole June July period in which it seemed like every night Belle or Ramirez were hitting GW HR's off of Lee Smith or his flame thrower teammate from the Angels.

What about Lenny Barker? I was at that game (nine years old.) That was a pretty good Indians moment at a time when there weren't many.
