The second part of the the Indians All-Decade Team brings us to the era of the “Great War” (WWI), and the Indians sported some great players in the ‘teens. Still named the Cleveland Naps, the team finally changed their team name to the Cleveland Indians. The Indians started the decade still a young franchise, riding on the heels of future Hall of Famer, Nap Lajoie. As the decade drew to close, the Indians became a team on the cusp of a championship.
