JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Another day, another accolade for 2B Jason Kipnis.

On Oct. 21, the Cleveland Indians named Kipnis the franchise’s 2010 Minor League Player of the Year. It’s just the latest recognition of what has been a remarkable year for the 23-year-old standout.

According to this MLB.com article, Kipnis currently ranks third on the Indians’ depth chart at second base, giving him an outside chance at getting some MLB playing time in 2011. Not bad when you consider Kipnis was an outfielder until being switched to second base this year.

Coincidentally, the precise title of the Indians’ annual honor is the “Lou Boudreau Award.” A Hall of Fame shortstop who went on to become a manager and broadcaster, Boudreau was raised Christian but his mother was Jewish.
