CLEVELAND — Even though Trevor Bauer is now part of the Cincinnati Reds, his heart is still with the Cleveland Indians.
The former Indians pitcher was spotted at a Tribe game Wednesday as his ex-teammates obliterated the Houston Astros 10-4 at Progressive Field.
A picture of Bauer enjoying the game was posted to social media by GV Art + Apparel.
“He’s crazy but I love it!” the Cleveland T-shirt company tweeted. “Who Does this? Trevor Bauer at the Tribe game just being an ordinary fan.”

Bauer's trade was made official earlier in the day.
In a three-team trade, the Indians sent Bauer to the Reds in exchange for outfielders Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes, left-handed pitchers Logan Allen and Scott Moss and third baseman Victor Nova.
The split with Bauer was mostly expected, but the Tribe said "it’s never easy to part with a player of his caliber.”
