He showed it off again tonight tracking down this Freddie Freeman popup:

It didn’t look pretty, but it was a really tough play going into foul ground, watching for the wall, and having to cover this much ground:

Check out this beautiful shot of the catch, with shocked looks all around:
Kyle Schwarber probably won’t win any Gold Gloves out in left field, but he tracks balls reasonably well, gloves them reasonably well, and has an excellent arm. That’s not bad, all things considered.
