The Cleveland Indians have announced that they will be sending some memorabilia to the MLB Hall of Fame in Cooperstown from their historic 22-game win streak that is now an American League record.
The win streak is the longest win streak technically because the 1916 New York Giants streak included a tie and can be considered as an unbeaten streak because a tie is not a win.
The Indians will be sending the following to Cooperstown:
- The First Pitch Ball from Win number 20
- Mike Clevinger’s jersey from victory 21
- Second base from Jay Bruce’s walk-off in the 22nd game
- Jose Ramirez’s bat when he had 5 extra base hits
Streak stuff on its way to @baseballhall:

Since the Indians win streak snapped on September 15th, the Indians continued their winning ways. Cleveland has won 27 out of their 28 games, and have won 5 consecutive since having their streak snapped.
As mentioned multiple times, the Indians win streak was a once in a lifetime thing to see and something like that will probably not be seen again in our lifetime.
