CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Despite the season ending way too early, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis kept his promise and went ahead with his annual "Shoe Toss".

 After tweeting, 'how he wish it was off a parade float but the show must go on...' 

Kipnis cleaned out his locker and met more than 100 fans at Progressive Field Monday to give away items he collected all season.

The shoe toss took place nearly a week after falling to the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the American League Division Series.

He also gave away bobbleheads and signed jerseys, hats, baseballs and other items that fans brought to the toss.
