In 1959, thousands of grade-school kids became wide-eyed fans of the Cleveland Indians baseball team for the first time. They thrilled to the power of Rocky Colavito, the dash of Minnie Minoso, the antics of Jimmy Piersall, and the gutsy pitching of Cal McLish.

Andy and his classmates at Audubon Elementary School believed it would go on forever, until one fateful April day.
