‘Voice of the Indians’ Tom Hamilton signs contract extension

CI_060615-034.CR2

Legendary broadcaster entering 27th season of calling Tribe baseball

The Cleveland Indians today announced a multi-year contract extension with the “Voice of the Indians,” TOM HAMILTON. The six-time recipient of the Ohio Sportscaster of the Year Award and recent Press Club of Cleveland Hall of Fame inductee will be entering his 27th season of calling Cleveland Indians Baseball in 2016.

“We are very excited for our fans that Tom Hamilton will continue as the ‘Voice of the Indians’ for multiple years to come,” said Cleveland Indians Sr. VP of Public Affairs BOB DIBIASIO. “Tom is an integral part of our brand as his voice has become synonymous with Indians baseball. His enthusiastic calls and ability to masterfully document the game of baseball on the radio make him one of the best in sports.”

Hamilton was promoted to the top position on the Indians broadcast team in 1998 following the retirement of the legendary Herb Score. In his 26 seasons since 1990, Hamilton has called 69 postseason games for the Tribe from 1994-99, 2001, 2007 and 2013, including all six games of the 1995 World Series and all seven games of the 1997 World Series. He joined the Indians following a three-year stint as a broadcaster for the Class AAA Columbus Clippers (1987-89).

He will continue to be joined in radio broadcast booth by Jim Rosenhaus, who has been Hamilton’s full-time partner for the past four seasons broadcasting games on the Indians Radio Network.

2014 Season in Review: August — Hammy/Thome honored, ballpark renovations, Carrasco’s return, and walk-offs

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We’ll review the 2014 season with monthly recaps on TribeVibe throughout the next month or so … Past installments:

Aug. 1 – Tom Hamilton honored: Hammy was celebrated before the game for 25 years in the Tribe radio booth, and shared the night on the field with his family.

Aug. 1 – David Murphy goes off in 12-2 win: Murphy went 4-for-4 with two doubles and two singles in the Tribe’s win over his former team.

8/2 – Giambi gives up No. 25 for Thome: At the end of a pregame ceremony honoring Jim Thome – statue unveiling, Thome retiring as a member of the Indians and more – Jason Giambi gave up his No. 25 as an homage to Thome. Pretty cool.

8/3 – Brantley hits second walk-off homer of the year: The Indians completed a three-game sweep of the Rangers on Brantley’s walk-off in the 12th, his 16th homer to that point.

Aug. 7 – Indians unveil Progressive Field renovations: Indians President Mark Shapiro unveiled major enhancements to Progressive Field aimed at improving the fan experience. The project includes an expanded Kids Clubhouse, new social spaces and better connection to the city and players.

Aug. 10 – Carlos Carrasco returns to rotation, starts amazing second half: Carrasco, who started the year in the rotation but moved to the bullpen, returned to the rotation and pitched five scoreless innings to start a remarkable second half of the season. (more…)

2014 Season in Review: July — Triple play, military salute, Brantley All-Star, #VoteKluber & more

We’ll review the 2014 season with monthly recaps on TribeVibe throughout the next month or so … Past installments:

July 2 – Indians turn double replay triple play: The Indians did something teams had a hard time doing this year – getting the speedy Yasiel Puig and Dee Gordon out on the basepaths. The Tribe triple play in LA went F7-2-4, Brantley to Gomes to Kipnis. With two instant replay reviews thrown into the mix, this became a first-of-its-kind play.

July 4 – Indians honor military with Homestand Heroes: The Indians played host to branches of the military on our nation’s birthday, with the club’s first Homestand Heroes military tribute — during which the Indians paid tribute to fallen, current and future military heroes before and after the game.

July 6 — Brantley named to first All-Star team: Michael Brantley was named to his first AL All-Star team after a stellar first half.

July 6 — #VoteKluber madness begins: We thought Tribe pitcher, after a stellar May and first half generally, would also be named an AL All-Star. Instead, he was part of the Final Vote, which meant we had to get creative on social media. The result was a wild four days of #VoteKluber. Sorry again for filling up your timelines.

July 6 — Big Yan and Little Yan: 6-year-old Yan Perez got to meet Tribe catcher Yan Gomes before the Tribe’s game against the Royals, and Yan even hit a homer later for the little guy. Yan Perez was undergoing treatment for a serious illness, and was treated to a trip to the ballpark by the Ronald McDonald House.

July 7 — Hegan remembered: Late Tribe broadcaster Mike Hegan was honored before the Tribe’s game against the Yankees, and it was quite the touching tribute, led by his former partner, Tom Hamilton. (more…)

  • On Opening Day, the Indians announced that Jason Kipnis had agreed to a six-year contract extension through the 2019 season with a club option for 2020.
