Golden Spikes Spotlight: Ian Happ
CINCINNATI — Ian Happ takes a while to figure out.
It’s unusual that you might find the best hitter in college baseball at a contest between two teams with a combined record of 2-14, in the uniform of a Cincinnati team that hasn’t made a regional since 1974 and at one point this season started nine freshmen in a game. But it’s not unheard of for a northern school without much history of producing top players to churn one out every now and again. Given the right conditions, first-round hitters can pop up anywhere.
