MAPLE HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - At 96 years old, Juna Reynolds could not be more excited about the Tribe going to the World Series.
The Maple Heights great-grandmother was born in 1920, the year the Cleveland Indians won their first World Series. So she will have been around for every World Series appearance they made, and she enjoys this year as much as she always has.
She doesn't miss the chance to watch a game, and stays glued to the TV all baseball season long. Her granddaughter says she has a lot to say during the games and isn't afraid to yell at the players through the screen.
Reynolds played herself in high school, and passed the passion on to her kids and grandchildren.
She says she saw this World Series run coming.
"I kept thinking we are doing good, and we're going to do it," she said. "And we did."
She predicts a Indians World Series win.
"Sure they're going to do it," she says. "The Indians are going to win!"
