The first week of April is great for sports fans, because you’ve got MLB’s opening day coinciding with the end of the NCAA tournament.
Why not enjoy both?
That’s what Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is doing.
He also went to school at Arizona State, so he’s right at home in Phoenix. Who can blame him for wanting to celebrate his birthday here?
Kipnis is on the disabled list right now with a shoulder injury that will have him missing 10 days. So naturally he headed to Phoenix to watch the game, but he couldn’t miss out on his own team’s first road game against the Texas Rangers.
This, my friends, is what we call smart sports consumption.
