One of the veterans on this year's young Indians team is tribe 3rd baseman Jack Hannahan. The 32-year-old from St. Paul, Minnesota is entering his sixth year in the major leagues.
In his five years in the big leagues, Hannahan has already been with four teams. He made his major league debut back in 2006 with the Detroit Tigers, before making stints with the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners.
Hannahan joined the Tribe as a free agent signing for the start of the 2011 season. He was signed to a minor league contract, but was able to earn a spot on the Indians roster in spring training.
Hannahan finished his first season with the tribe hitting .250 with 8 home runs and 40 RBI. He is also regarded as one of the best defensive 3rd baseman in all of baseball.
