CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Now is a great time to be a Clevelander!
Indians right-hander Corey Kluber will be starting Tuesday when they take on the Chicago Cubs in the World Series.
All their hard work is finally paying off. Kluber says its been great to have the NBA World Champions in the stands cheering them on.
"It's entertaining. It looks like their having a good time up there," Kluber said of seeing LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at Progressive Field during the games.
"It sent a vibe through the city, you could feel their energy through their run," added Kluber. "It's been great for Cleveland, the fact that they won a championship, hopefully we can bring another one."
The Cavaliers brought the city its first championship since 1964 by winning the NBA title last month. The Indians last won the World Series in 1948.
