I was at a question session virtually with Nico Hoerner and Ian Happ from the Cubs! All of the questions that were asked are below. I couldn’t get everything, and sometimes I missed a player’s response. Enjoy!
What advice do you have for baseball players to increase strength?
Ian: Long toss
What is the Longest HR That You Ever hit
Ian: Last year against the A’s- It was 474 feet. It’s going to be my longest of the career.
