Ryan Merritt sent Indians fans thank you notes for his wedding presents

Ryan Merritt may have been the unlikeliest hero from the 2016 postseason, pitching the Indians into the World Series with his two-hit start in Game 5 of the ALCS. He may have cemented himself into Indians lore as a 24-year-old rookie. But still, when total strangers buy you dozen of gifts from your wedding registry, it's only polite to say thanks.

After the ALCS win, Indians fans found the wedding registry of Merritt and his fiancée Sarah Brushaber and thanked the pitcher for his performance by, well, pretty much clearing it out.

On Saturday afternoon, thank you notes from the couple showed up on Twitter:

Clearly, Ryan and Sarah really appreciated those muffin tins.
