Official Cape Cod Release
CINCINNATI – University of Cincinnati baseball sophomore Ian Happ (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) was named the Coca-Cola Player of the Week in the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League on Tuesday to open summer play. Happ is playing for the Harwich Mariners in the Cape Cod Eastern Division.
Through the first five games of the season, Happ leads the league with a .563 batting average after collecting nine hits in 16 at bats. He was instrumental in Harwich’s victory over Yarmouth-Dennis on opening day with two doubles that carried the Mariners to a 7-2 victory. In Thursday’s outing against Brewster, Happ helped the Mariners dominate the Whitecaps, scoring three runs and driving in another in a 10-0 victory.
Happ is returning to the Cape Cod League after a successful 2013 summer campaign where he was named an Eastern Division All-Star.
During the spring season with the Bearcats, Happ hit .322 and led the team with 13 doubles and five homeruns.
