Did you see it?

Not just Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis’ three-run homer in Game 4 of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Saturday night.

But the ride he got from this teammates. In the dugout.

You’ve seen players line up and give a teammate high-fives as he goes through the dugout, but the Indians did something akin to The Hora. That’s a Jewish tradition. At a wedding, the bride and groom are sitting and their chairs are lifted up during a dance.

Jacob Lauing caught the Kipnis moment on Twitter:

Others thought it was great.
