The Indians are four wins away from giving Cleveland a second professional sports championship in 2016 after going 52 years without one. 

The Tribe will begin the journey against either the Dodgers or Cubs on Tuesday, the same night the Cavaliers are scheduled to receive their NBA championship rings. Seeing how both events were scheduled to occur at nearly the same time, the NBA announced Friday a change in plans.

Finals MVP LeBron James and his cast of 3-1 comeback kids will now receive their championship rings just over 30 minutes before the scheduled first pitch of Game 1 (8:08 p.

m. ET, Fox). 

The city of Cleveland is already buzzing with excitement and fans are pouring into the city, filling up hotels and jacking up Game 1 ticket prices to more than $750 for standing room only.
