Ian Happ Just Made an Incredible Diving Catch and Double-Play!

Chicago Cubs

Ian Happ’s offensive production has been excellent this season, even as we adjust to a slightly new look approach at the plate (less power, fewer strikeouts). But his defense in left field has been just as strong all season. Perhaps sticking to just one spot instead of moving all over is making an impact.

In any case, that defense was on full display in the bottom of the second inning today, when Happ made an excellent diving (and rolling) catch on a liner to left field and then turned it into two outs, doubling off Aristides Aquino at second base.

GREAT read, great play.
