Earlier this month, Cleveland Indians utility man Mike Aviles got the terrible news that his 4-year-old daughter, Adriana, had been diagnosed with cancer.

Understandably, Aviles took some time off after that so he could be with his little girl. When he finally returned, a number of his teammates made a touching gesture to show their support. Specifically, they shaved their heads in solidarity with Mike Aviles’ daughter, who will be losing her hair as the result of chemotherapy treatments.

Obviously, Aviles was touched by his teammates’ level of concern and support. Here’s what he had to say to’s Jordan Bastian:

“It means a lot for me. It shows I’m kind of liked, or my daughter is anyway. In all honesty, it’s kind of cool when your whole team is on your side. It goes without saying, everybody in here has families and they know how it is. It’s a tough time, but to know that my team, the coaching staff, everybody, is on my family’s side and my little girl’s side, it helps out a lot and makes me feel good.”

Nice work, Indians.
