The Indians Are Giving World Series Tickets to the Guy Who Helped Kenny Lofton Make His Flight to Cleveland

Kenny Lofton threw out the ceremonial first pitch at yesterday's World Series game at The Jake. That happened, in part, because a guy named Ken Kostal gave up his seat on a flight from LA to Cleveland two days ago so that No. 7 could take his place. Lofton had been on standby for the overbooked flight.

Clevelanders being Clevelanders will never get old. It was a helluva gesture, and as the internet gave its thanks to Kostal, it also collectively called out for the Indians to show their appreciation by giving Kostal some tickets to the World Series. If the series goes to Game 6, that's now going to happen.
