Kipnis becomes Gold Glove first baseman with mitt alteration originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Sunday is Kipnis' first ever appearance at first, so he made a slight modification to his first baseman's glove to morph into a Gold Glove caliber defender over there.

Sometimes, a slight adjustment is all a player needs to perform at a high level. Maybe this is Kipnis' adjustment at a new position.
