CLEVELAND - The internet is an amazing place. Just ask Cleveland Indians pitcher Ryan Merritt.
A fan apparently stumbled upon Merritt's wedding registry. The result? The starting pitcher and his bride-to-be may have an overwhelming amount of thank-you notes to write.
Indians fans began buying gifts for Merritt through the online registry, which lists items from Target and Pottery Barn.
As of 11:30 a.m. Thursday, all of the item requests except the Shark Navigator vacuum, a laundry sorter and a bedsheet set appeared to be filled.
Merritt gave Cleveland a trip to the World Series (with a little help from the offense) and in return, Cleveland is giving back.
