Suchan Favorites: My Five Favorite Cleveland Indians


Kenny Lofton

This being when the Indians got really good was back around 1995; when they went all the way to the World Series. That team had a ton of talented young players. I’ll mention one of them here and another later on. Kenny Lofton was the speedster, base stealer and center fielder for the Indians that could climb the fence like Spiderman. Lofton, who had played college basketball out in the desert at the University of Arizona, became a very good baseball player as an Indian. He was the Indians’ lead-off hitter for those great teams of the late 1990s. He played for the Indians from 1992-2001. He had several outstanding seasons. One of his best seasons was in 1996 when Lofton stole 75 bases and had 210 hits on the season. He helped Cleveland Rock, back in the day!
