Cubs start spring training, Kyle Schwarber starts smashing

Written by

Spring training isn't even officially underway yet, and Kyle Schwarber is already hitting dangerously. The 22-year-old slugger took part in unofficial batting practice in Mesa, Arizona on Wednesday, with unfortunate consequences for a fan's car outside the park:

Schwarber's hitting was one of the highlights of the Cubs' playoff race in 2015, his rookie year. He infamously landed a home run on top of Wrigley Field's new right field video board in the NLDS-clinching game against the Cardinals, which the Cubs decided to leave there as a lucky charm for the NLCS. Spring training starts in earnest next week.
