The Chicago Cubs enjoy playing in warmer weather than the recent freezing temperatures.

During Thursday afternoon's contest against the Cardinals in the fifth inning, outfielder Jason Heyward scorched a two-run homer to right center field to score Addy Russell to put the Cubs up a commanding 8-1.

It was his second homer of the season and 39.7 percent of his plate appearances have ended with a batted ball with an exit velocity of 95 MPH or higher. This sounds great as Heyward continues to hopefully find his past swing.

The Cubs bullpen approved of the crushed dinger with their traditional group dance.
