Jim Thome has become the first home-grown Cleveland Indians player since Larry Doby to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It had been quite the moment for Thome — and for Northeast Ohio.

Jim Thome’s Hall of Fame exhibit includes the pockmarked aluminum bat he hit stones with as a kid in Peoria, Ill. The glove he wore at third base in the 1995 World Series—a first appearance for Cleveland in more than 40 years. The shoes he wore throughout the Indians 1997 season, when he hit 40 of his 612 home runs. 

Former Indians great Jim Thome will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this weekend. Thome played 13 seasons in Cleveland and amassed 612 career home runs. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said the Peoria, Ill., native was never considered a top prospect.
