Though President Grover Cleveland declared Labor Day a national holiday in 1894, the occasion was first observed on Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.
When I was a kid growing up in Cleveland, I believed - completely, wholeheartedly, without reservation or pause - that the Cleveland Indians were named to honor a Native American ballplayer named Louis Sockalexis, who played for Cleveland in the late 19th Century.
Cleveland is my hometown, and the Indians have a narrow but rich history.
I love Cleveland, and I love going back home. That's where my family is. That's where my roots are.
I want an explosion the size of Cleveland.
