Ian Happ And Tommy La Stella Are Already Making Web Gems


It might only be the first spring training game, but don’t tell that to Ian Happ and Tommy La Stella. The duo combined for a pair of outstanding defensive plays for the Chicago Cubs on Friday, when they started Cactus League action against the Milwaukee Brewers.

La Stella got the nod at third base and on his very first chance he made a smooth bare-handed play to throw out the speedy Keon Broxton.

La Stella also had the first Cubs RBI of spring training, slashing a single to left field in the third inning.

Yet, it was Happ who made the best play of the game, with this diving catch in center field to rob the Brewers of a couple runs in the bottom of the third.

Happ is one of three or four players that Joe Maddon is considering to bat leadoff this season.
