Your browser does not support iframes. The Indians may be well out of the postseason hunt, but it doesn’t appear that they have stopped trying. Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall came through with a walk-off single against Detroit on Sunday and his teammates were just as excited about it as a playoff contender would be. In fact, they may have been too excited. As you can see at about the 21-second mark of the video above, a few of the Indians went straight for the butt as the entire team bombarded Chisenhall in celebration. Here at LBS we know as well as anyone that celebrating can be hazardous and cause injuries like this one and this one, but it’s a good thing Chisenhall didn’t experience anything like that. This one may have been a bit tougher to explain than the rest. H/T Deadspin
