When someone swings the bat like Kyle Schwarber, it's safe to assume damage will be done to whatever gets in the way of a ball coming off his bat. That was the case Tuesday morning during batting practice prior to the Cubs 7-0 loss to the Brewers, when Schwarber managed to smash a ball into the Budweiser Patio in center field.

And despite all the glass, nobody was hurt and a lucky Cubs vendor got to take home a souvenir.

Maybe this is a sign of things to come for Schwarber, who since a hot start to the season, is currently slashing .235/.356/.436 with 13 home runs since May 13th. It's clear the power is still very much there for Schwarber, let's hope we see some more broken windows in Wrigleyville as the Cubs continue their quest to win their third consecutive NL Central title.
