Since 1915, the Cleveland baseball club has been known as the Indians. Although the Indians have won two World Series, in 1920 and 1948, the franchise now holds the record for the longest title drought among major league teams.
The Spokane Indians baseball franchise and the Spokane Chiefs hockey team were both thriving enterprises because to the efforts of Bobby Brett and his brothers. Brett Sports, which owns and administers the Spokane Indians baseball club and the Spokane Chiefs hockey team, has been synonymous with Inland Northwest minor-league sports over the course of almost 20 years.
The World Series championship droughts that are currently in effect are as follows:
|Seasons||Team||Last World Series championship won|
|61||Texas Rangers||Never (franchise began 1961)|
|53||Milwaukee Brewers||Never (franchise began 1969)|
|53||San Diego Padres||Never (franchise began 1969)|
|45||Seattle Mariners||Never (franchise began 1977)|
