Mike Aviles, a veteran backup infielder for the Indians, found out earlier this month that his 4-year old daughter, Adriana, was diagnosed with leukemia. Aviles took 10 days off to be with his family, but he returned to the team on May 18. To support Adriana, members of the team began
shaving their heads over the weekend.

Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis told Cleveland.com how much Aviles means to every player in the clubhouse.

"Mike is one of the best clubhouse guys there is in this entire league," said Kipnis. "He's been a great person and a great teammate. I think all the guys have done a good job of stepping up to make him feel welcomed and back at home and that nothing has changed. Numerous guys have told him that if he needs anything at anytime that they'll be there for him. I think baseball has been a good distraction for him."

The 34-year old veteran is hitting .301 with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs in 26 games for the Indians this season.
