Obviously we had a shirt made for Francisco Lindor’s front flip

Did you think we’d let the first great Cleveland baseball moment in almost a full calendar year go by without a shirt?

The fine folks at BreakingT are back again with their first Cleveland Indians shirt in quite a while. This one comes thanks to Francisco Lindor reminding us why he simply the best. At everything.

Francisco Lindor somersaults across home plate after taking Mike Clevinger deep
