LeBron James rallies Indians fans before ALDS Game 2
Friday October 7th, 2016

LeBron James made an on-field appearance to rally Indians fans ahead of Game 2 of the ALDS against the Red Sox.

As Cleveland hunts for its second sports title of 2016, James and some of his Cavs teammates took to the diamond. LeBron addressed fans and pumped up the crowd before the game’s first pitch on Friday afternoon, in what was apparently a surprise appearance.

Cleveland holds a 1–0 lead after a 5–4 win over Boston on Thursday.

James is a noted Yankees fan, but that gives him plenty of license to not like the Red Sox and show up for his hometown.

This would have been truly exceptional, except for the fact the Indians decided to play music by the the Black Eyed Peas, in 2016, to introduce him.
