VIDEO: Teen with severe form of spina bifida sends inspiration to Indians

AKRON, OH (WOIO) - It's Cleveland and we never do things the easy way. We're in Game 7 of the World Series and the Indians have their best pitcher on the mound in Corey Kluber.

Fans may be a little nervous, but remember "216" or 2016 is our year.

Akron Children's Hospital sent out a little inspiration to the Indians with one determined 19-year-old.

Bryce Swartz has a severe form of spina bifida. He wears a body brace all the time and has to undergo physical therapy.

Bryce's dad said, "he's a very sports-minded individual, so this win would make Bryce really happy!"

The Norton High School student is a huge sports fan. He met LeBron James and at the time James said he would name his son after him and he did.
