Before the game, Indians fan Kathi Heintzelman held up a sign that caught the eye of first baseman Mike Napoli. The sign asked the slugger for a hug and a home run. The reason? Heintzelman is about to start chemotherapy. Of course, Napoli walked over and gave her a hug and an autograph.
Then, in the bottom of the sixth inning, Napoli came through to complete the request by smacking a solo shot over the wall.
