Ian Happ: “We want to do this together. We want to do it for the fans. We want to do it for the country.”

Chicago Cubs

The headline there does plenty of the work, but I think you should listen to Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ say it himself.

Happ, who has been on a media tour promoting his Quarantine Coffee (for a very good cause), was on 670 The Score today, discussing the efforts to get baseball back.

Happ is such a well-spoken ambassador for the players and for the game. He’s not out there to blast the owners, nor to make aggressive arguments – indeed, he rightly offers that it’s best for those discussions to remain behind closed doors.

On the “get baseball back” front, Happ simply underscored what he believes the importance of the sport to be, and the need to get it back if it can be done safely and ethically. I just really liked hearing it from him.

Listen to the clip there in the tweet, and the full interview with Happ (wide-ranging!) there at the link. He gets into concerns for minor leaguers, the questions about how flexible the health and safety rules can be, lots of golf, and much more.
