You know Larry Dolan as a lawyer, successful businessman and owner of the Cleveland Indians. But Larry Dolan is also a big baseball fan. He played Little League ball and then at St Ignatius and at the University of Notre Dame.
Like many in his age group he has fond memories of the great Indians teams, especially the 1948 World Champions.
In this fan-to-fan interview, Larry Dolan speaks about the greatest Cleveland Indian ever - and answers a baseball question he has never been asked before.
He predicts how modern players would do against stars of the past and what it takes for small-market teams to compete and win against teams like the Yankees who seem to have an unlimited budget.
Mr. Dolan discusses Chief Wahoo and the emergence of the "I" as an Indians brand as well as why he has remained in Cleveland for most of his life.
And, much to the delight of the Great Lakes Geek, he has a special word for his brother, Cablevision Chairman Charles Dolan.
