If there was any doubt that Cleveland had some of the most dedicated, loyal fans in all of sports, think again.

A spectator who was sporting a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey drew the crowd into a frenzy in the sixth inning of last nights' Cleveland Indians game was escorted out of the ballpark by security personnel.

Hundreds of fans seated in Progressive Field's left-field bleacher section started chanting obscenities and pointing at the man in the sixth inning of last nights Indians game against the New York Yankees. As the man was escorted out of Progressive Field a number of fans followed him towards the gate as they began yelling more derisive chants and throwing debris.

Last night's incident is just another example of how Cleveland has some of the best sports fans in the world today. For decades we've made let it be known that we love our teams. We're there for them at their worst and we're there for them at their best. Yeah, we can get a bit rowdy but we get the message across. In this case the message being, DON'T SCREW WITH US.
