The Indians have supported Mike and his daughter Adriana thoughout the year as she undegoes treatment. In May, the Indians shaved their heads in support of Adriana. In June, Tribe owner Paul Dolan followed suit, allowing Aviles to shave his head.

Tribe players, coaches and front office members who shaved their heads in support of Aviles and his family took a team photo while wearing orange "Team Adriana" shirts in June.
