Tribe Trivia: Alvin Morman

To date, there have been 250 pitchers to make an appearance in an Indians uniform without ever winning a game.

The vast majority of them (Jorge Julio, Scott Stewart, Russ Swan, Jeff Juden – to name a few) made only a handful of appearances. But the leader in this category was a key man in the Tribe bullpen for the better part of two seasons.

Alvin Morman made 65 appearances in his Indians career, finishing with a record of 0-1. The reason for this is simple: he was a lefty specialist, rarely facing more than 2 or 3 batters at a time. But in 65 games you would expect to just stumble upon a victory. He holds the record in this category by a stunning 17 games.

Morman broke the record previously held by Orlando Pena (48). Trailing Pena are Dick Radatz (42), current Indian Joe Smith (37) and Chad Paronto (35).
