The Cleveland Indians' 2005 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Indians attempting to win the American League Central division. They had a very good September (with 17 wins and 9 losses), and went into a season-closing series with the Chicago White Sox with a chance to tie the White Sox for the division lead, but lost three close games to finish 6 games behind the White Sox, who were the eventual World Series winners.

Offseason[edit]

  • November 3, 2004: Ernie Young was signed as a Free Agent with the Cleveland Indians.[1]
  • November 24, 2004: Bob Wickman was signed as a free agent by the Indians.[2]
  • January 17, 2005: Juan Gonzalez was signed as a free agent by the Indians.[3] His season - and his career - ended on his first regular season at-bat, when he pulled a leg muscle trying to run out a ground ball.
