On Thursday, all Indians players, coaches and front office staff who shaved their heads to support Mike Aviles and his 4-year-old daughter, Adriana, gathered for a group photo at Progressive Field.

The group wore orange “Team Adriana” T-shirts for leukemia awareness. Adriana was diagnosed with leukemia, and all players, coaches and some front office staff – including Paul Dolan, GM Chris Antonetti and more – have shaved their heads in support.

Last month, we told you why all Tribe players and coaches have shaved their heads: to support utility man Mike Aviles, whose daughter, Adriana, is battling leukemia.

Today, we added another man to the group: Indians owner Paul Dolan.

Aviles said throughout the 10-minute haircut — he’s a pretty good barber! — that he sincerely appreciated Dolan’s support for him, his daughter and the rest of the team.

Cleveland Indians players and coaches including Jason Kipnis, Yan Gomes and Mickey Callaway have saved their heads to support Mike Aviles and his family; Aviles’ 4-year-old daughter, Adriana, was diagnosed recently with leukemia.

From Wednesday’s broadcast:


It began with only a handful of players during the Indians’ last road trip. Slowly, more and more members of Cleveland’s team and staff began joining the cause, shaving their heads as a collective show of support for Mike Aviles‘ young daughter.

Earlier this month, Aviles’ 4-year-old girl, Adriana, was diagnosed with leukemia and has a tough road ahead in battling the disease. Aviles said Adriana laughed at her dad when he buzzed his hair and said he looked funny. As more and more people have followed with closely cropped hair, Aviles has felt overwhelmed.

“It means a lot for me,” Aviles said on Wednesday morning. “It goes without saying, everybody in here has families, and they know how it is. It’s a tough time, but to know that my team, the coaching staff, everybody, is on my family’s side and my little girl’s side, it helps out a lot and makes me feel good.”

Presenting: Indians Mean Tweets

The Cleveland Indians have received a lot of national attention lately (read about it here), but that hasn’t stopped fans from being slightly critical. Indians players, staff and some special guests decided to fire back to the negative Twitter comments. Their reactions do not disappoint.

(By the way, we still don’t know what JIXES are…)
