Ramirez certainly seemed to enjoy the moment.
As cameras focused in on him, the Guardians star hyped up the crowd as he donned some cool shades.

The Guardians season may have come to an end, but that doesn’t mean that the love isn’t still present.
Ramirez gave a nod of approval at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, sending the fans into a frenzy as they honored the Guardians slugger.
The 30-year-old led the way for the Guardians this season, hitting for a .280 average and crushing 29 home runs as he guided Cleveland to a 92-win season, which ultimately earned them their first AL Central title since 2018.
The team fell short in the ALDS, but that didn’t take away from all the excitement of the 2022 season.
Fans in Cleveland still love their stars, and that love was on full display with Ramirez in the house on Saturday.
