This applies to those who have not already bought a Jason Kipnis jersey at any point in the past few years. Kipnis’ jersey remains an easy choice for a gift, as the second baseman has become one of the core members of this Indians team.
It is hard to think of the Indians and not have Kipnis come to mind, as he has remained a constant while there has been turnover all around the roster.
The best part about getting a Kipnis jersey is that he will be on the team through at least 2019, while there is a team option in 2020. This doesn’t take into account any extensions he may sign before his deal is up, as he will hopefully continue to stay in Cleveland during the latter half of his career.
He has been a fan favorite for his hard-nosed style of play and his success, which includes two All-Star Game appearances since 2013.
Be sure to casually check with that person on your shopping list to see if they already own a Christmas jersey, but even a new one wouldn’t hurt. The old one probably has a ballpark mustard stain or two anyway.
