Cleveland Indians All-Time Baseball Team


Each All-Time MLB team consists of one player in all eight fielding positions, as well as four starting pitchers and one reliever. The teams were created using players who were the most skilled, the most influential and the most popular in that teams history. Also players were only selected for one team, so you won’t see Jim Thome on the Cleveland Indians and the Philadelphia Phillies, he will be on one or the other.
