CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A Tribe fan who gave up his seat to former Indians player Kenny Lofton will get rewarded for his gesture. Lofton was scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night. However, he was on standby for a redeye from Los Angeles to Cleveland.

Ohioan Ken Kostal gave up his seat so Lofton would make it in time, according to a tweet.  

The Indians heard about the Kostal and are giving him tickets for Game 6, if necessary. That's not all. United Airlines is providing Kostal with 62,200 airline miles for his use on a future flight.

Why 62,200?

"In honor of Kenny’s 622 career stolen bases, we will be giving 62,200 miles to Mr. Kostal to use for future travel plans with United," said United Airlines.
