The Indians honored Larry Doby, who broke the American League color barrier in 1947, by
continuing to play horrible baseball and losing to the Yankees wearing his number 14 last night. In addition, Larry Doby Jr. threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
On a tangential note: Newly acquired utility infielder Chris Gomez had been wearing #14 with Baltimore before coming to Cleveland. When he arrived, the team joked that he could wear #14 for his first game, but that would be it. Gomez will now wear #27. —Vince
