Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber is one of the top young sluggers in the National League and played a pivotal role in the team's first World Series win since 1908.

However, Chicago White Sox lefty Derek Holland gave up a homer to him on Friday and then didn't know his name in post-game interviews.

“Hats off to ‘Schreiber,’ I think that’s how you say his name, right?” Holland said.

I would imagine that he certainly needs to start reading the scouting reports of different star players after Schwarber's three-run blast.

During the 2016 World Series, Schwarber hit .412 with seven hits, a double and two RBIs. In 2015, Schwarber hit .246 with 16 home runs, 43 RBIs with an outstanding .842 OPS in only 69 games (273 at-bats) in his rookie season.

He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the first round (4th overall) in the 2014 MLB Draft.
