CLEVELAND -- We're not fans of the Cleveland Indians, but they did something pretty class -- we've got to admit.

The team tweeted Wednesday that they're giving two World Series tickets to a Ken Kostal, who gave up his airplane seat to Kenny Lofton so he could throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Game 1.

On social media, some Indians fans hoped Kostal, of Marblehead, Ohio, could get a World Series ticket for his sacrifice.

Kostal said he didn't have plans to go to a World Series game because of his work requirements; he owns a restaurant.

But now if there is a Game 6, he will be getting two tickets. There's mo word on what else he might get if a Game 6 is not needed next week.

Lofton was played for both the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians.
