MUST-SEE: Schwarber smacks solo homer, Cubs reliever catches it with his hat


by - Senior Writer -

ARLINGTON, Texas — For the second straight day, Chicago Cubs power hitter Kyle Schwarber went yard against the Texas Rangers. Serving as the designated hitter, Schwarber drilled a fastball thrown by Rangers starter Lance Lynn in the second inning to put the Cubs up 1-0. The dinger traveled 406 feet out to left-center and left the bat at 107 miles per hour.

Perhaps more impressive than the home run, however, was the hat catch made by Cubs reliever Randy Rosario in the bullpen. While sitting in a chair in the elevated visiting bullpen at Globe Life Park, Rosario used his cap as a makeshift glove and caught Schwarber's bomb to give himself a nice souvenir. There is no word yet regarding whether or not Rosario will sell his prize on eBay.
