CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians will have a personal piece of their past at Game 6.
Eddie Robinson, the last living member from Cleveland's 1948 World Series title team, will be at Progressive Field on Tuesday night as the Indians try to win their first championship in 68 years.
The 95-year-old Robinson was the starting first baseman on the '48 team, which featured Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller, Larry Doby, who broke the AL color barrier, shortstop/manager Lou Boudreau and pitcher Bob Lemon.
Robinson is making the trip from Fort Worth, Texas, to see the Indians try to close out the Chicago Cubs. He batted .300 with six hits in the '48 Series and drove in Cleveland's fourth run in Game 6 when the Indians beat the Boston Braves to win the championship.
