 CLEVELAND (AP) - Former general manager John Hart and three-time All-Star second baseman Carlos Barega have been inducted into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame.
Hart was the architect of the Indians' most successful sustained run in franchise history, winning five straight AL Central titles and two pennants in the 1990s. Hart turned a perennial loser into what many believed to be a model franchise during that decade. Cleveland won its first pennant in 41 years in 1995.
The Indians were known in that era for their powerful offense, which included Baerga, Albert Belle, Kenny Lofton, Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez and Sandy Alomar Jr. Baerga, who played second base, made the All-Star team in 1992, `93 and `95. He hit over .300 for four straight seasons from 1992-95.
The ceremonies took place at Progressive Field prior to Saturday's game against Minnesota.
