Jason Kipnis Was Singing Adele During Yesterday's Tribe Game




Yesterday's Indians spring training tilt against the Arizona Diamondbacks was mic'ed-up for a "live audio" broadcast, meaning you listened to players and umps and coaches talking as the game went on.

Kipnis later tweeted he wasn't exercising his vocal chords for the benefit of the audience; it's simply just a thing he does to stay focused. Jhonny Peralta used to have a similar routine, but his mainly involved staring into the stands and counting boxes of popcorn. Didn't work out too well.

Let's hear some Gaga next time.
