Cubs’ Kyle Schwarber smashes car windshield with home run
Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber smashed a fan’s car windshield with a home run he hit during batting practice at spring training on Wednesday.
The fan posted a photo of the damage on Instagram.
“Our car is now famous,” the post read. “Kyle Schwarber’s home run in batting practice found our windshield. Everyone took pictures and laughed at the idiot who parked there. I did the same.”
Schwarber, 22, batted .246 with 16 home runs and 43 RBIs for the Cubs during his rookie season in 2015. He set a Cubs postseason record with five home runs last year.
The Cubs, who advanced to the NLCS in 2015, open spring training play on March 3 against the Milwaukee Brewers.
