Congratulations to Jason Kipnis and the Kipnis family. Jason was called up to the Cleveland Indians yesterday after a couple years in the minors. He recently played for the USA team in the Futures Game a couple weeks ago as well as the Minor League All-Star Game. Jason lead off the futures game with a homerun and put to rest any doubts people may have had about him. I’ve written about Jason in the past so I figured I would update everyone on his status. I think he’s the only Kipnis that I never played ball with growing up. I’ve played with both of his older brothers and his older sister, but he is just out of the age range that I would have played with. Too bad though, I would have liked to see where I stacked up against a guy in the Majors. So once again, congratulations Jason and the Kipnis family and good luck, I’ll definitely be tuning in to a few Indians games here on out.
