A man who gave up his seat on a flight earlier this week so Kenny Lofton could get to Cleveland for Game 1 of the World Series is getting something in return. 

The Cleveland Indians are giving Tribe fan Ken Kostal tickets to the possible World Series Game 6 in Cleveland. In addition, United is providing Kostal with 62,200 airline miles for use on a future flight. 

Seem like a random number? If you'll remember, Lofton had 622 stolen bases in his career. 

Lofton¬†nearly missed his flight to Cleveland on Monday after the plane from Los Angeles was overbooked. That's when Kostal stepped in. 

Thanks to the fan's kind gesture, Lofton made it to the game Tuesday, where the Indians shut out the Cubs 6-0.
