Indians’ Kipnis Greets Hometown Northbrook Ballplayers


Northbrook native and Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis graciously met travel baseball teams from his hometown before the Aug. 9 game at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Kipnis signed countless autographs and chatted beside the Indians’ dugout with the 12-year-old boys from Northbrook’s three 12-year-old travel teams.  The boys were on their way to play in the Cooperstown Dream Park tournament in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Kipnis, 25, is in his second season with the Indians.  A 2005 graduate of Glenbrook North High School, he played college baseball at Arizona State, where he was an All American and named 2009 Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Year.
