Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is known as “Mr. Smile” around the baseball world, and unlike some other nicknames, its meaning is pretty obvious — the guy just loves to smile. Whether it’s on the basepaths …

… working out …

… or dressing to impress.

For his 25th birthday on Wednesday, Lindor faced a new challenge. Could he smile through the crazy winds of indoor skydiving?

You bet:

As always, the birthday boy is looking good — albeit a little goofy. We think it adds to the charm.

Andrew Mearns is a writer for Cut4 whose baseball obsession was born from the shattered dreams of Mike Mussina’s perfect game attempt in 2001. He has a startling memory of World Series highlights that barely functions as a party trick.
