A nice read looking at the history, fans, makeup, managers, and how each team got to where they are today.

Notes From the Wigwam: Tribe clinches Wild Card spot
Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to your PLAYOFF-BOUND Cleveland Indians! The Tribe won six games this past week as the team's win streak reached 10 games.

All attention now turns to Wednesday when the Indians will host the American League Wild Card Playoff Game. Until then though, join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he takes one look back at the amazing week that was in the latest edition of Notes From the Wigwam.
