According to foxsports.com, the Cleveland Indians will be wearing a patch on their jerseys this season of the number 7, in honor of Al Rosen. Rosen wore number 7 for Cleveland between 1947 and 1956, earning American League MVP honors in 1953. According to Fox Sports:
Rosen is the only person to have earned the MVP honors as a player and executive of the year as a member of a front office.
Rosen twice led the league in number of home runs, including his MVP season when he belted 43. Playing full time beginning in 1950, and spanning ten years, Rosen smacked 192 home runs, with 717 RBI (a category he also led the league in twice), and a .285 batting average.
