The Cleveland Indians teams of the 1990s were nothing but magical for Tribe faithful. Many great players have impacted the team’s success over the last 25 years, but none more than these five.
The Cleveland Indians teams of the 1990s were eccentric, exciting and showcased some of the game’s best offensive talent. Outside of the early 2000s and the 2007 postseason run, the last 15 years have left much to be desired.
For that reason, four of the five on this list were stars in the 90s. The Tribe has seen some great players come through the organization in recent years, but few have spent enough time in the city to garner significant consideration for the list.
Tenure, performance and fan admiration all need to be considered when discussing a franchise’s all-time great players. Hopefully, current Indians such as Jason Kipnis, Michael Brantley, Francisco Lindor will bring Cleveland back to the glory days and join the greats. Only time will tell.
Without further ado, here are the top five Indians since 1990.
