Tweet: Tribe fan gives up seat to Kenny Lofton

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A Tribe fan was more than happy to give up his seat to former Indians player Kenny Lofton, according to a tweet.

The Indians Hall of Famer will throw out the ceremonial first pitch for Game 1 of the World Series.

In case you haven't heard the Cleveland Indians will play the Chicago Cubs in hopes of becoming 2016 World Series champions -- a title both teams haven't had in a combined 174 years.

The World Series was last won by the Indians in 1948. The team's competition, though, has waited even longer.

The Cubs haven't won the World Series since 1908, a 107-year drought. Combined with the Indians' 67-year streak, the two have waited 174 years for the title, making this the most combined years between World Series wins in MLB history.
