After an amazing 3-0 game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers, many baseball fans are wondering, can the Cleveland Indians win the World Series?

For years, Cleveland was known as a city that failed when it came to sports. In 2004, ESPN even called it “the most tortured sports city.” Finally, the curse seems to have been broken. First, Cleveland-native UFC fighter Stipe Miocic captured the heavyweight title and brought the belt to the city in May. Less than a month later, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA finals by defeating the Golden State Warriors.
