When in doubt, go with a Francisco Lindor jersey. Who doesn’t want to show off their pride for one of the most likable players in the game.
2016 was Lindor’s first full season with the Indians, and all he did was make the All-Star Game and win a Gold Glove. Not a bad start.
And he did all of this with a smile on his face. It is clear to anyone who watches that Lindor loves what he does, making him a great ambassador for baseball in the city of Cleveland, and someone who is easy to rally behind. Wearing his jersey is just a small token of gratitude for a young man who may be the next big star in Cleveland.
The 158 games Lindor played in during the 2016 season shows he is committed to his team, while also being a consistent person for fans to cheer for at the confines of Progressive Field.
Expect to see countless Lindor jerseys in Cleveland next season, but that does not mean buying one as a gift won’t be special. Fans want to cheer for likable players who are also successful, and Lindor is that type of player.
