This site was founded by myself almost three years ago, and while I contribute most of the articles and information housed here on this site, something that has long been overdue in my book has been to acknowledge all of the other contributors here on the IPI. People that without their help and generosity this site wouldn't be near as complete with the content or have all the extra aesthetic features. It takes time to build "friends" when putting together a group of contributors for a site, and I feel I have been lucky to find this talented group of people to help keep this place active and provide very good commentary, analysis, and other features to complement the scouting reports, articles, and so on I put out.

Information about myself and the IPI can be found in the "About" link along the top, but this page is dedicated to the many contributors who have made this THE place to go for all of your Cleveland Indians minor league news and analysis, as well as the big league team.  This page will be linked along the top of the page for future reference, and I am posting this as a regular article today to bring attention to this page.

Without further ado, here is the information for the rest of the site staff:

Site Writers

Jim Pete: Co-Editor, Site and Carolina Mudcats Columnist
Jim Pete was born and bred in the great city of Cleveland, and has lived on and off in the Forest City his whole life.  He is currently residing in Raleigh, NC, less than an hour away from the Kinston Indians. The Cleveland Indians just happen to be his sporting passion, coming in a close second to his wife, son and daughter, even though rooting for the Indians has been akin to walking on broken glass and hot coals at the same time.

Jim's first memories of the Tribe was as a five-year old watching Charlie Spikes, Andre "Thunder" Thornton, Duane Kuiper, Rick Manning and the great Buddy Bell in the massive and empty Municipal Stadium.  Over the past thirty years, after watching every Indians player of any consequence either walk away for free agency or get traded for prospects, he developed a keen interest in the Indians minor league system.  Moving away from Cleveland, and close to the only Indians affiliate outside of Ohio cemented that interest.

Jim has reported on the Indians in the past at The POJO Dojo, MVN's Tribe Report and Son's of Geronimo.  He currently writes about the Big League Indians at Bringing Back Boudreau, and covers the K-Tribe for  He attends Historic Grainger Stadium regularly with his kids and wife in tow, and longs for the day when the High A prospects he's been watching for the past several years bring Cleveland the World Series championship we've all been waiting for.  Jim can be reached at
