Kipnis becomes Gold Glove first baseman with mitt alteration

With several regulars, including Anthony Rizzo, out of the Cubs lineup on Sunday, second baseman Jason Kipnis got the start at first base.

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.

Nailed it. 

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