1920 World Series Baseball an Unexpected Gift

A Cleveland Indians fan who wound up working for a southern California sheriff’s department had his office adorned with Tribe memorabilia.  It turned out to be a wise bit of interior decorating.  He now owns a baseball autographed by members of the 1920 World Series champs.

The supervising district attorney noticed Precup’s Indians gear one day and it turned out she had quite a connection to Cleveland baseball history.

Linda Root’s great aunt worked for the Indians’ general office for 41 years, selling tickets and handling secretarial duties. Among the memorabilia she picked up was a 1920 World Series baseball, signed by members of the team.
