Indians Manager, Eric Wedge inducted into AFL Hall of Fame

October 18, 2008 by  

Cleveland Indians Manager, Eric Wedge was inducted into the Arizona Fall League Hall of Fame on Friday night before the Scottsdale Scorpions game to recognize him for his performance in the major leagues. Wedge, whose Fall League experience was only as a player continues to have great success as a manager in the Major Leagues.

Wedge managed his 5th season with the Cleveland Indians in 2008 with leading the team to an even .500 record. In his three seasons between 2003 and 2005, Wedge managed the team to some wonderful success including huge winning percentage increases for the team during that time. Additionally, Wedge managed the team with enough success to earn them a trip to the ALCS in 2007.

With the AFL recognition comes the fact that the Indians will be moving to the Cactus League in 2009 for spring training. The Indians who have been training in the Grapefruit League will be moving to Goodyear to train in their brand new 108 million dollar state-of-the-art spring training facility. Cleveland, who had played for 46 years in Tucson, moved to Winter Haven Florida before returning next year to Arizona.
