Cleveland Indians Affiliate History

Here is a listing of the Cleveland Indians affiliates going back to 1932. This listing is as complete as possible, though as new information comes in it will be updated (feedback is welcomed).  If you need to reference this listing again in the future, it will be housed in the resource section for easy access in the future. I apologize for the formatting....I will continue to work on it to see if it can be cleaned up at all.

Note:  The minor leagues were much different prior to the early 1960s, so it is hard to get into on those leagues and teams. With travel not nearly as easy, as you can see the teams had a lot of affiliates in order to strategically place players all over the country that they had just signed.
