Ned Yost played for Spokane Indians

Which either means something to you or it doesn't. Either way, this weather is tough to beat.

Today’s onetime Spokane Indians player

Yes, I have mentioned Clarence before. And with a nickname like his, I will mention him again.

Mr. Coleman was in Spokane in 1961.

Did you know…

That the baseball player below, Armando Galarraga — the pitcher famously robbed of a perfect game by a blown call in 2010 — once played for the Spokane Indians?

The cards I mentioned in today’s Slice

Well, at least two of these spell “Veradale” correctly..

He was destined for big things

If you don't follow baseball, the onetime Spokane Indian led all players in votes for a spot in the upcoming major league all star game.

His real name was Clarence

And, as you can see, he spent part of the 1961 season in Spokane.

Yet another Spokane Indian in the bigs

Well, now that this is posted, I see it is virtually impossible to read. But if you had Superman vision you might note that he was here in 1967, 1968 and 1969. 

Another all-star who played in Spokane

Kinsler played for the Spokane Indians in 2003.

Today’s big leaguer who played here

You might remember Cora from his years in Seattle.

Today’s big leaguer who played here

Bud pitched for the Spokane Indians in 1981.

Onetime Spokane Indian with good name

If you are thinking Jerry Don looks familiar, it could be that you are confusing him with actor William H. Macy, who also did a stint in Spokane — in the movie “Benny & Joon.”

More Spokane Indians who got the call

Sakata spent all or parts of three seasons in Spokane in the 1970s.

I seem to recall that my former colleague, Susan English, has some stories about this guy. 

Ed played for the ‘Amazing’ 1962 Mets

Born in Montana, he attended Lewis & Clark High School and WSU (then WSC), and played minor league ball here. He faced indecent exposure charges here as a young adult.
