DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Indians decided to go with two Tribe legends when it came to throwing out ceremonial first pitches in the World Series, despite a social media effort to bring in Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn.
For Game 1, former Tribe center fielder Kenny Lofton had the honors.
For Game 2, it was former second baseman Carlos Baerga.
Baerga, a righty, hummed it in for a strike (we'll say it would've brushed the outside corner had he been facing a right-handed hitter).
Baerga had at least 200 hits in both the 1992 and 1993 seasons for the Tribe.
The Indians entered Game 2 up 1-0 in the World Series.
