It's HAPPening still.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ led off Tuesday's contest against the Los Angeles Angels with a solo blast to right center to put the Cubs up early 1-0.
It was an excellent at-bat where he battled back from being 0-2 and, on the six-pitch, took the pitcher deep. Angels outfielder Dexter Fowler tried to snag the flyball but it left the yard.
The homer was Happ's second of the spring. Currently, he is batting .323 with five RBIs.
Happ has been penciled in for the leadoff position once the regular season starts up according to manager David Ross.
