DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - In a recent Players Tribune essay, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said he holed up in his town house for a few days after the 2016 World Series.
The Tribe fell to the Chicago Cubs in Game 7. Kipnis wrote that his body shut down after that game. He said he felt ill physically and mentally.
As the focus of his essay shifts from the 2016 to 2017 season, Kipnis calls on fans to come along for the ride:
Though Kipnis was on the 10-day disabled list to begin the season, the infielder seems ready to get back after it.
The Indians began their season Monday against the Texas Rangers. Cleveland's home opener is April 11 against the White Sox.
