The Indians are four wins away from giving Cleveland a second professional sports championship in 2016 after going 52 years without one and the Cavaliers have changed their plans.
The Indians will begin the journey against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Chicago Cubs in the MLB World Series on Tuesday.
The Cavaliers are scheduled to receive their NBA championship rings on the same night.
Seeing how both events were scheduled to occur at nearly the same time, the NBA announced Friday a change in plans, moving up the Cavs' clash against the New York Knicks.
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 one.
