It Ain’t Spring Training for Defense Apparently: La Stella and Happ With Stellar Plays (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs Highlights

Don’t tell these guys the games don’t count. Right from the word go, the Cubs’ defenders were ready to put together a highlight reel.

The first batter of the game for the Brewers, speedy Keon Broxton, dribbled a sure infield hit to third base. But Tommy La Stella, looking like Kris Bryant (he’s excellent at this play), barehanded it and made a great throw:

That guy may just make the club.

Meanwhile, playing in center field, where he’ll hope to pick up a lot of starts this year, Ian Happ made a sweet diving catch to end a bases-loaded situation:

That was all out right there! I think the wind out there is playing tricks with the outfielders a bit, because it looked like neither Happ nor Jacob Hannemann got a good read on that one (and other outfielders have struggled a bit today). Nice recovery by Happ.
