It's Sweet Home Chicago for Jason Kipnis

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis returned to his hometown of Chicago during the team's second stop on their three-city tour on Monday.

Kipnis, a 2005 graduate of Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Ill., earned three varsity letters in baseball and two in football during his prep days. He still calls the city home during the offseason.

Kipnis grew up a Chicago Bulls fan and split time attending both Cubs and White Sox games as a child. He expects nearly 30 of his family and friends to be in attendance at U.S. Cellular Field throughout the series.
