There are 162 games in a Major League Baseball Season. This has not always been the case, but it has been true long enough that the sample size is plenty large. I have spent the last three years charting out the most outstanding Game 1, Game 2…through Game 162.
The dataset is limited to Major League Baseball games by the Cleveland franchise going back to 1901. This is considered the beginning of the modern era in baseball as well as the genesis of the team now known as the Indians (although at times they were known as the Bronchos, Blues, Naps, or other nicknames when things were less official).
It will not be spoiling anything to let you know that the Indians always win in this Perfect Season Project.
Otherwise, there are no hard and fast rules other than that something remarkable must have happened. Lots of ink has been spilled about “the greatest games in Indians history” and some of those usual suspects will appear here, but many more unique and unusual games will be highlighted.
Some Games have been a challenge to find a story, others have such a wealth of history that it has been hard to choose just one to feature.
I believe that this unique approach will enlighten some new fans and bring back memories for others. I hope that the comments will be a place for everyone to share their baseball memories, and have some debate over what constitutes the Perfect Season.
