Cincinnati Bearcats baseball great Ian Happ has rebounded of late in the 2021 campaign.

After a slow start, the Chicago Cubs slugger still owns a career low .224 batting average and a career low .315 on-base percentage. But he has started a late-season power surge. As of this morning, Happ is up to 23 home runs paired with 57 RBIs. Happ is one homer away from tying his career best and 11 RBIs from matching his career high.

A few weeks back, fans at Target Field in Minneapolis were pelting Happ with Skittles. Skittles has responded by sending Happ a helmet covered with Skittles to wear for protection or as a fashion statement.
