Tyler Naquin’s game-winning jersey on display at Progressive Field

If the Indians have a big postseason presence, Naquin’s inside-the-park home run will go down in Cleveland history.

The jersey worn by Cleveland Indians rookie Tyler Naquin when he hit an inside-the-park home run to beat the Toronto Blue Jays is now on display at The Corner bar in Progressive Field.

Naquin’s jersey, coated in the dirt of Progressive Field and proudly displayed on a stand, has an accompanying card that details the events of the home run, as well as a bit of historical context:

Tyler Naquin became the 2nd Indians player to hit a walk-off inside-the-park home run. The home run capped a two-run ninth inning for the Tribe.

In 1916, Braggo Roth smashed a walk-off inside-the-park home run to deep center at League Park.

In case you missed that play and somehow still haven’t seen it, or you just want to watch it again (because you know you do), here it is in all its glory.

On top of providing Indians fans with one of the best moments of the season to date, Naquin is in the running to win the American League Rookie of the Year Award. The 25-year-old rookie is slashing .303/.363/.567 with 14 home runs for the Tribe this season, mostly platooning with fellow center fielder Rajai Davis. Naquin leads all AL rookie position players with a 2.0 FanGraphs WAR, but he trails Detroit Tigers rookie pitcher Michael Fulmer’s 2.4 fWAR.
