Kyle Schwarber and the right field video board, eh? A match made in heaven.
After parking a famous homer atop the then-new board in the NLDS, Schwarber once again became acquainted with Wrigley Field’s right field video board tonight, except it was a much less friendly experience. He broke the dang thing:
Looks like our @Budweiser sign is damaged.

The Cubs will be taking the damages out of Schwarber’s next paycheck, but at least it’s a tax write off for him.
Nah, I’m just kidding. They won’t charge him. They will, however, ask Schwarber to hit another one up there to fix the sign, not unlike when your TV isn’t responding and you give it a healthy smack on the side to “fix” it.
