Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was a perfect high-energy hype man for the Indians
Around Cleveland, Baker Mayfield is something of a popular guy. The 24-year-old quarterback for the Browns helped commandeer the team to one of its most successful seasons in recent memory in 2018.
He's got a bright future ahead of him, no doubt -- but whenever he decides to hang up his cleats somewhere down the line, he'd make a pretty great hype man. He proved this with a wild appearance during the Indians' game against the Angels on Saturday at Progressive Field.
Up in a luxury suite, he made the most of his camera time ... and then some:
"I just don’t like the idea of my franchise quarterback spending time at a baseball game. I mean, what are you doing, @bakermayfield? You don’t see guys like Aaron Rodgers shotgunning beers. Just not a good look. Go watch some film." - @ColinCowherd (probably)— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) August 4, 2019
Obviously inspired by Mayfield's high-energy display, the Indians -- who entered the fifth inning looking for their first hit -- promptly scored five runs en route to a 7-2 win. Three of those runs were plated by Francisco Lindor, who blasted a dinger minutes after Mayfield showed off a Lindor jersey in the suite:
The kid's got a bright future, whether on the football field or elsewhere.
