CLEVELAND — During Sunday’s game against the Oakland Athletics, Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor took a moment to wish every mom a happy Mother’s Day.
“Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms. You all are the greatest and without you guys, the world wouldn’t be the same way,” Lindor said.
Lindor went on to wish his mother, step-mother and sister a happy Mother’s Day and dedicated the game to them.
“I love you guys and I’m playing for you guys,” Lindor said.
Lindor and the Tribe made sure to get the win for all the moms watching.
