The third edition of The Cleveland Indians Encyclopedia contains everything fans have ever wanted to know about one of baseball's most storied franchises.

- Nearly 300 player profiles--from Napoleon Lajoie and Tris Speaker in the early part of the 20th century to 1960s stars Rocky Colavito and Sam McDowell to today's headliners like Omar Vizquel and Jody Gerut
- Season-by-season descriptions of unforgettable moments and memories
- Nearly 1,000 illustrations of players, game highlights, and memorabilia, including a panoramic foldout of Jacobs Field
