    Larry Doby was the first African American to play in the American League.

    • On July 15, 1994, Albert Belle's bat was confiscated by umpire Dave Phillips.[8] It was the result of White Sox manager Gene Lamont believing that the bat was corked. During the game, Indians pitcher Jason Grimsley removed a ceiling tile in his manager’s office and clambered on top of an Script error: No such module "convert". cinder block.[9] He replaced the corked bat with a conventional bat but the bat had Paul Sorrento's name on it. Belle was suspended for seven games.[8]

    By Friday August 12, 1994, the Indians had compiled a 66-47 record through 113 games, just one game back of the Chicago White Sox for the AL Central Division lead. They had scored 679 runs (6.01 per game) and allowed 562 runs (4.97 per game). They were leading the AL Wildcard Race over the Baltimore Orioles by 2.5 games. Cleveland was leading the Majors in nearly every offensive category, including hits (1,165), runs scored (679), home runs (167), runs batted in (647), batting average (.290), slugging percentage (.484) and total bases (1,946).[10]

    Cleveland pitching was also strong, as Indians pitchers had combined for an MLB-high 17 complete games pitched before the Players' Strike prematurely ended the season.[11]

    File:Clinton inaugural pitch 04 April 1994.jpeg
    President Bill Clinton threw out the ceremonial first pitch on April 4, 1994, before the first Major League game played at Jacobs Field.

    In May 1990, Cuyahoga County voters approved a 15-year sin tax on alcohol and cigarette sales in order to finance the new sports complex. In June 1992, the ceremonial first pitch was thrown at the site of the new Jacobs Field before construction of the building began.

    In 1994, the ballpark opened under the name Jacobs Field as the new home of the Cleveland Indians, which had previously shared Cleveland Municipal Stadium with the NFL's Cleveland Browns. On April 4, 1994, the Indians played their first game at the new stadium. President Bill Clinton threw out the ceremonial first pitch, and the Indians defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-3 in 11 innings.
