The Cleveland Indians' 2006 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Cleveland Indians attempting to win the AL Central.

Offseason[edit]

  • December 7, 2005: Paul Byrd was signed as a Free Agent with the Cleveland Indians.[1]
  • January 6, 2006: Todd Hollandsworth was signed as a Free Agent with the Cleveland Indians.[2]

Regular season[edit]

On September 2, 2006, Kevin Kouzmanoff became the 23rd Major Leaguer to hit a home run in his first Major League at bat, the 12th American Leaguer to do so, and the second of 2006 (along with Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals). He was only the third player to have the home run be a grand slam.[3] Kouzmanoff is the only player in Major League Baseball history to hit a grand slam on his first pitch ever seen in the Big Leagues. The pitcher who gave up the hit was Edinson Volquez.
