The Indians celebrated Yonder Alonso's birthday by bringing a mariachi band to the clubhouse
Think back on your favorite birthday party. Maybe it was the one at the laser tag place. Or, how about the one where the clown came and made some nifty balloon animals? That time mom and dad splurged on the moon bounce was pretty cool, too.
Whatever it might be, it pales in comparison to what the Indians had in store for

Speaking to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian, Alonso surmised
"I'm going to get him back," he added.
In addition to the good feelings from the music and birthday festivities, Alonso took the opportunity to incorporate dancing into his warmup routine. "They didn't make me dance, but I just can't help it," he said. "You've just got to dance."
"I think I'm more excited than they are," Alonso said of the mariachi band. "They seemed pretty excited, but I'm just as excited."
Look for Alonso to have a little extra pep in his step against the Royals Saturday afternoon.
