The Indians celebrated Coco Crisp's two-run homer with copious amounts of head-rubbing

Coco Crisp spent his first four Major League seasons with the Indians. He spent his next three with the Red Sox, the second of which featured a World Series championship. Then, after 6 1/2 seasons in Oakland, Crisp returned to Cleveland almost 11 years after he first left, a return that led to him starting in left field for the Indians' 4-3 win over Boston in ALDS Game 3.

And we have to say, the Indians seem really glad to have him back:

That copious head-rubbing greeted Crisp after his two-run homer in the sixth inning extended the Indians' lead:

Which came after his sacrifice bunt in the fourth inning moved two runners into scoring position (who both indeed came home to score). In other words, Crisp was instrumental in all four runs that gave Cleveland the ALDS sweep. 

Yes, he definitely earned those head rubs.

Watch Crisp and the Indians take on the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday at 8 p.m. ET on TBS and Sportsnet.
