Mike Aviles’ daughters, Adriana and Maiya, throw first pitches at Progressive Field before Cleveland Indians Thursday game

The twin 4-year-old daughters of Mike Aviles threw ceremonial first pitches on Thursday night at Progressive Field before the Indians completed a three-game series against the Yankees.

Adriana Aviles was diagnosed with childhood leukemia in May and is being treated at Cleveland Clinic. Her sister, Maiya, will join her on the mound on Thursday.

She stole the show on the field before the game, as the video below shows:

In late May, his Indians teammates shaved their heads in support of he and his daughter, and in early June, Tribe owner Paul Dolan did the same; Aviles shaved Dolan’s head.

In mid-June, Tribe players, coaches and front office members who shaved their heads in support of Aviles and his family gathered at the ballpark for a team photo while wearing orange “Team Adriana” shirts.
