Francisco Lindor on Tuesday posted video on Instagram showing the Indians celebrating two of their teammates.

The celebration included a cake and photos, too. See Lindor’s post, below.

Last week, Terry Francona proudly announced that Santana and Hanley Ramirez were a step closer to U.S. citizenship after passing their required tests. Francona said he doubted Santana passed, so he made him show him the test.

“He came in and he had the questions on his phone, so we looked through the first 10,” Francona said. “He got nine of them right. I got seven.”

Santana and Ramirez will be sworn in as citizens on April 19.
