CHICAGO — With a trick shot fit for TikTok, Chicago Cubs second baseman Nico Hoerner hit a batting practice "hole-in-one." Hoerner was filmed hitting a home run that ricocheted off a tarp in the Wrigley Field bleachers and rolled into a hamper.

Cubs play-by-play announcer Len Kasper discussed the feat on Friday's broadcast, making dad jokes about TikTok and his lack of knowledge concerning it. In turn, the Cubs' social media team had some light-hearted fun at Kasper's expense, turning the footage of Hoerner hitting the hole-in-one into a TikTok video.
