A lot of babies take Indians plane to Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians traveled in style to Chicago on Thursday.

Teams use larger charter jets during the postseason, allowing players' wives and children to accompany.

"I wanted the guy just to fly around for a while. I thought it was pretty cool," Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Thursday.

First baseman Mike Napoli said it was the Indians' largest plane this year.

"There were a lot of babies on it, I'll tell you that," he said. "Flying in that weather was a little bit of a knuckleball express. The landing was pretty interesting. But, yeah, it was pretty big."
