Nick Swisher went to The Ohio State University before the Athletics selected him in the famed Moneyball draft. It's not surprising, then, that, back in Ohio as a Cleveland Indian, he's added the O-H-I-O chant/spelling to his post-homer celebration.
Swisher went deep off of former teammate Bartolo Colon on Thursday, and showed off the celebration on his way back to the dugout:
The crowd isn't quite into the response portion of this call-and-response celebration yet, but cut them some slack. It's Cleveland, not Columbus, and it's a day game, too.* There will be plenty more Swisher home runs over the life of his shiny new long-term contract for everyone to get on the same page.
*I say this, but then again, I also see OSU alumni and Ohio natives performing this in Boston. No disrespect intended, Cleveland!
