Ian Happ Robs a Would-Be Paul DeJong Homer!

Chicago Cubs

Ian Happ, who is a Chicago Cubs outfielder today, August 2, hours after the MLB Trade Deadline, just pulled off some fancy defensive work.

Tracking a deep drive, feeling the space as you approach the wall, and then timing the jump perfectly to rob a ball that would’ve juuuust left Busch Stadium. What a catch for Happ:
