Jim Pete

Senior Editor, Carolina Mudcats & Site Columnist

Jim Pete

Jim Pete was born and bred in the great city of Cleveland, and has lived on and off in the Forest City his whole life.  He is currently residing in Raleigh, NC, only 30 minutes away from the Carolina Mudcats. The Cleveland Indians just happen to be his sporting passion, coming in a not-so-close second to his wife, son and daughter, even though rooting for the Indians has been akin to walking on broken glass and hot coals at the same time.

Jim's first memories of the Tribe was as a five-year old watching Charlie Spikes, Andre "Thunder" Thornton, Duane Kuiper, Rick Manning and the great Buddy Bell in the massive and empty Municipal Stadium.  Over the past thirty years, after watching every Indians player of any consequence either walk away for free agency or get traded for prospects, he developed a keen interest in the Indians minor league system.  Moving away from Cleveland, and close to the only Indians affiliate outside of Ohio has cemented that interest.

Jim has reported on the Indians in the past at The POJO Dojo, MVN's Tribe Report and Son's of Geronimo.  He currently is a site editor, columnist and beat writer for the Carolina Mudcats for  He attended Historic Grainger Stadium regularly with his kids and wife in tow, and looks forward to his season tickets for the new Mudcats at Five County Stadium. He longs for the day when the High A prospects he's been watching for the past several years bring Cleveland the World Series championship we've all been waiting for.
