Niko got us going in pre-game. pic.twitter.com/zSTtvwAVDm— Mark Shapiro (@MarkShapiro) September 8, 2013
You guys remember Niko Lanzarotta? He is an awesome kid, but also somewhat of a good luck charm for the Indians. Last month, he met his favorite player Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis and asked them to hit home runs for him. And they did. So tonight they invited him back and gave him the home run balls. Pretty awesome. Apparently, he also met Asdrubal Cabrera, who went yard tonight. I’m not exaggerating, he might be the best good luck charm of all time. Even better than Christian Bale.
Remember Home Run Niko? He's back! He was visited by Jason and Carlos again today, plus Bourn, ACab and others! pic.twitter.com/36iAjGTInS— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) September 7, 2013
Plus, the fans who caught Carlos and Jason's homers on Aug. 24 are here, & gave Niko the balls back! A special day! pic.twitter.com/eDeD3LWPQg— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) September 7, 2013
