Kyle Schwarber’s relationship with the Wrigley Field Budweiser sign is a complicated one. In 2015 he hit a homer on top of it, and the ball stayed there for awhile because no one could safely reach it. Then on Wednesday during batting practice, Schwarber hit one in just about the same spot — about 450 feet — breaking it.

Schwarber, via MLB.com:
“I guess I hit it in [batting] practice. It had some wind behind it. You could see some wires fall. I apologize in advance. I’m sure they’ll make that quick fix.”
This comes one day after the A’s Ryon Healy homered into the second deck at Seattle’s Safeco Field, with the ball breaking a WSU student’s cell phone. The guy tweeted the A’s asking for a new phone, and the team agreed.
Fosse on the smashed cell phone:
"Put the phone in your pocket and watch the baseball game and you won't have to worry about it!"

A Presidential Photobomb!
