CLEVELAND-- Sometimes a good deed really pays off. The Cleveland Indians on Wednesday tweeted that they are giving Ken Kostal two tickets to Game 6 of the World Series because of what he did for Kenny Lofton.
Kostal, of Marblehead, Ohio, gave up his seat on a flight to Cleveland so that the former Indians player could make it to Tuesday night's game to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
On social media, some Indians fans hoped Kostal 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.
Also, United is providing Kostal with 62,200 airline miles for his use on a future flight. (Lofton had 622 career stolen bases).
"As the Official Airline of the Cleveland Indians, we are thrilled to recognize Indians fan Ken Kostal for helping Kenny Lofton get to Cleveland to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. In honor of Kenny’s 622 career stolen bases, we will be giving 62,200 miles to Mr. Kostal to use for future travel plans with United."
