Just when we were just grabbing our snacks and turning on the TV to watch the start of the season, Ian Happ did not waste any time and crushed the very first pitch of the season and sent the ball to the stands for a spectacular home run.

During the first game of the season between the Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park, Happ gave Miami's starting pitcher, Jose Ureña, a very warm welcome to his season, with a homer through the right field.

This could be the start of a very long season for the Marlins, as they traded away star players like Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, and Christian Yelich, as they are predicted to lose about 100 games this new campaign .

 

On the other hand, we have the Chicago Cubs, as they are World Series contenders and surely they will win the National League's Central Division and fight for the pennant with the Dodgers.
