The fanbase of the Cleveland Guardians was treated to an unexpected thrill of a season in 2022.
Led by Jose Ramirez, Steven Kwan, Shane Bieber, Triston McKenzie, and Emmanuel Clase, the Guardians surprised a lot of people, winning 92 games in their first year under the new name and capturing the AL Central crown.
The team took care of the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Wild Card Series and fell just short in the ALDS against the New York Yankees.
Throughout the season, fans brought unparalleled energy to Progressive Field.
That energy appears to have gotten the attention of opposing fans, and one fan stated on Twitter that the Guardians fanbase looks “really fun to be a part of.”
Not gonna lie, the Cleveland Guardians fanbase looks really fun to be a part of.

Guardians fans couldn’t agree more.
The team was fun to watch in 2022.
Clutch hits, impressive performances, and memorable moments headlined what was an exciting 2022 season in Northern Ohio.
There simply wasn’t a dull moment during the 2022 season.
Cleveland got off to a hot start, but found themselves in a tight race with the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins, the latter of whom led the AL Central for much of the season and was in front of the Guardians at the trade deadline.
But the Guardians got hot and ultimately ran away with the division title.
Fans enjoyed every minute of their run, from the clutch hits to the excitement of the postseason.
The spirit of Cleveland fans was simply unbreakable.
Guardians fans are raring to go for 2023 and are hoping for even more memorable moments.
