Welcome to the record books, Ian Happ.​

Happ broke an all-time Cubs franchise record in Tuesday's game against the Pirates. The Cubs center fielder and Pittsburgh native hit a leadoff home run, his 10th long ball of the 2020 season. It also was No. 60 of his career, a franchise record by Cubs switch hitters. 

Augie Galan, who played for the Cubs from 1934-40, held the previous record with 59.

Here's a look at the top 5:

-Ian Happ (60)

-Augie Galan (59)

-Walt Wilmont (42)

-Ben Zobrist (40)

-Brian McRae (35)

Should we count shortstop Javier Báez on this list? Báez, who's hit 115 home runs, did bat left-handed in 2019 against the Reds, after all.
