You will absolutely take any leadoff homer you can get, and Ian Happ has plenty of power to supply them.
That said, he didn’t actually bust out a ton of power to lead off game two tonight, but at Great American Ballpark, in just the right spot, it can still be a homer:

You could not walk that ball out to a better spot to just barely get it out. But it counts just the same as a 450-foot blast.
LOL – a 46-degree pop fly should never leave the park:
