Hargrove Comes Home
All-time Fan Favorite, former coach and manager and Indians player, Mike Hargrove returns to the Tribe as an advisor to Manny Acta for the 2011 season!
He spent 22 years in an Indians uniform as either a player, coach or manager. In 1974, he grabbed the AL ROY Award with the Rangers. He batted .292 in 888 games over seven years as a member of the Tribe. According to Indians.com, Hargrove also ranks second all-time in club history for managerial wins with 721 from 1991-99, guiding the team to AL pennants in '95 and '97. He was inducted into the Indians Hall of Fame in 2008.
As a life-long Indians fan, I have to say this is AWESOME news! Wahoo!! Welcome, back, Hargrove.
