The Chicago Cubs are working towards the start of the 2020 season as they had a scrimmage on Thursday night.

Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber smacked a solo homer to left field in the fourth inning against starter Kyle Hendricks.

The piped-in music from 'Whoop there it is' is played after the dinger.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo had just left the bleachers from his day off as he could have thrown the home run ball back into the field of play if the homer was just a few minutes earlier.

Check out videos below of the homer:
