If the Indians were to have a former player that was the face of the franchise like Ernie Banks is for the Cubs, who do you think it would be?
The attitudes of guys like Feller and Ted Williams were pretty amazing. The best of the best, but Americans first and foremost. Great men.Bob Feller could be "Mr. Indian" just on the basis of his tremendous stats, but he brought so much more to the Indians' franchise, Major League Baseball, and the USA as a country.
He was a hero to all. Giving up his prime years (he was 3rd in MVP voting in 1939, 2nd in 1940, 3rd in 1941) in 1942, 1943, and 1944 -- he sacrificed all of them to serve all of his countrymen in WWII.
This man stands heads and shoulders above everyone else. What a great American hero who was always proud to be a Cleveland Indian.
Francisco Lindor grins just like Chief Wahoo much of the time. He'd make a fine Mr Indian...Would be pretty hard to come up with a new Mr. Indian. Free agency has all but wrecked that.
