Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge deserves hardy congratulations for bringing the American League Central Crown back to Cleveland in 2007. Second guessed and criticized for his low key style of management, Wedge had a plan and stuck with it. He demonstrates much patience with his players while leading them daily with a never give up attitude.
Out of character, Wedge admittedly worked hard with his extraordinary bunch to successfully clinch the division title during the final home stand. On Sunday, September 23, the last home game of the season, Wedge delivered that gift to the fans and the city of Cleveland in a classic effort.
Thanks, Eric...We are counting on you to take us all the way!
