On Friday night, the Cleveland Indians hosted the Chicago White Sox at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. While the fans in attendance were focusing on the game in front of them, it was impossible to ignore the big news from the NBA world of LeBron James returning home to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In order to get the fans excited and to continue the trend of showing LeBron James that his exit from Cleveland four years ago is a thing of the past, the Indians used their scoreboard to send LeBron a welcome home message.

There is no video from the moment the LeBron James message went up on the scoreboard, but we can assume that the fans in the seats at Progressive Field were more than pleased to stand up and cheer.

At the time of this post, the Indians were leading the White Sox 6-4, so it looks like that energy and enthusiasm in Cleveland has translated to success on the field.
