Man travels over 6,000 miles to see Indians in World Series

CLEVELAND, Ohio-- The things you do for love -- and for love of the Cleveland Indians.

Marc Skilinski traveled from the other side of the world to make it to Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

“There's no way, there's no amount of money, no amount of distance will keep me from this game," Skilinski said.

The Army staff sergeant is stationed in Seoul South Korea. That’s 6,678 miles away from Cleveland and it was an adventure to get here.

First, he had to get tickets to Game 2. He's way out in right field but he and his best friend are in the building.

Next, he flew from Seoul to Shanghai, and sat on the runway a few hours before a 14-hour Delta flight from China to Detroit.

Then, he rented a car and drove into Cleveland, Tuesday night, just in time to find a great bar to watch Game 1, which the Indians won.

“To see the people of Cleveland everywhere -- apartments, bars, restaurants, Cavs, grocery stores-- everybody, it didn't matter from age of five to 95.. it was 'let's go Tribe!'”

Skilinski isn't even from Cleveland or Ohio for that matter. He grew up in upstate New York near Syracuse but adopted the Indians as his team more than 30 years ago.

His best friend is a Cubs fan and came in from Syracuse so they could see the game together.

“We go back 35 years, and we talked about it for years, jokingly, and you’re a Cubs or Indians fan, you know-- about heartbreak- you never think it's really gonna happen. But. I texted him and he's like, 'okay, I’ll take off of work.'"
