Mike Aviles
shaving their heads

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.
