INDIANS FIRST HOME OPENER IN JACOBS FIELD 4-4-94

 

April 4, 1994 a new era of Cleveland Indians baseball got underway when the tribe beat Seattle in extra innings in the first opening day at Jacobs Field. Dennis Martinez squared off against The Big Unit Randy Johnson. Wayne Kirby won the game with a walk off single. President Bill Clinton threw out the first pitch. Broadcaster Tom Hamilton's signature catch phrase "we're underway here at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario" was born on that day. Lots of great memories there over the past 25 years. On this date in 2001, the streak of 455 straight sell outs came to an end. That record has been beat twice by the Giants and the Red sox.
