Fans of stumbling Indians feel betrayed at home

CLEVELAND - It was a nauseating weekend for any Cleveland Indians fan: The hated Yankees came to town and swept the home team, and cheers from thousands of New York fans turned Jacobs Field into Yankee Stadium West.

CLEVELAND - It was a nauseating weekend for any Cleveland Indians fan: The hated Yankees came to town and swept the home team, and cheers from thousands of New York fans turned Jacobs Field into Yankee Stadium West.

Turns out that some of those raucous New York fans got their shirts, hats and even Derek Jeter bobbleheads from the Indians shop at Jacobs Field. All weekend, the team had racks of Yankees gear for enemy fans to buy and wear as they cheered against Cleveland. "It flew," an Indians spokesman said.

Sacrilege? Other Cleveland teams apparently think so. The Browns sell only Browns stuff at the team's stadium store. And the Cavaliers have only Cavs merchandise at their store.

The Twins sell only hometown merchandise in their main team shops.
