Cleveland nun, die-hard Indians fan blesses Progressive Field ahead of Game 6

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- We know Cleveland Indians fans are die-hard.

But one group of women bring new meaning to that term.

A group of local nuns from the Congregation of St. Joseph stopped by Progressive Field Tuesday.

Sister Juanita was among them. She said she loves Cleveland and what sports do for the city. She sees the Tribe as a "great unifier."

Sister Juanita actually blessed the field -- ending with 'Go Tribe!'

"Nothing can stand in our way," she said.

Sister Helen Ann shared with us that she remembers the last time the Tribe won the World Series -- in 1948. She actually went to their celebration parade after the win.

The two sisters were joined by Sister Jan, Sister Madeline and Sisters Paula Terese and Theresa.

In a sign of their huge support for Cleveland, all the sisters are actually involved in a rivalry -- with a group of nuns in Chicago.

The nuns have been emailing each other, decked out in their Cubs and Indians gear.

Our group of sisters say that although they love the nuns in Chicago, the Tribe will outplay the Cubs.
