Jason Kipnis' Annual Shoe Toss Hits Progressive Field Tomorrow at Noon


It's time once more for Jason Kipnis' annual shoe toss — in which he cleans out his locker full of shoes, bats, gloves and other miscellaneous items, signs them and tosses them over the players' lot fence at Progressive Field to adoring, waiting fans.

He posted on his social media today that folks can find him outside throwing  his goodies starting at noon tomorrow.

Obviously, the shoe toss is earlier this year than the veteran Tribe player hoped, as the team's playoffs dreams were dashed by the Houston Astros last week. Kipnis even admitted on Twitter that the season was "Definitely not good enough nor the finish we wanted this year..."

Nonetheless, be there at noon tomorrow for a little bit of fun. You may even score an old shoe.
