Jorge Soler is a talented young player who is still finding his way in the MLB during his second full season in the big leagues, and while his production on the field is not yet where the Cubs would like it to be, he showed off some elite skills in the dugout recently.

As Chicago took down the rival Cardinals on Wednesday, Soler decided he wanted to get a better look at the action, so he fashioned some cool, new binoculars using some tape, eight cups and his imagination.

Through those binoculars Soler got to see the Cubs take a 9–8 victory over the Cardinals as ace Jake Arrieta moved to 9–0 on the season.
