CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Cleveland Indians’ designated hitter and right fielder Franmil Reyes had quite a night Wednesday.
He hit the last of 4 solo home runs for Cleveland.
But his, a 451-foot blast into the left-field bleachers had special meaning.
“Please, God, let me hit this for Jessica,” he said.
Reyes threw a ball to a woman sitting behind the dugout before he came up for his last bat of the night.
Jessica is battling cancer. She’s almost done with chemo.
It’s unclear how the two connected, but Jessica’s story clearly made an impact.
Cleveland beat the Texas Rangers Wednesday night 7-2.
