Cubs players are looking particularly dapper this evening as they kick off Players Weekend in their special gear.
And, what do you know, Kyle Schwarber immediately gave us a reason to show off the duds when he yanked a first inning blast down the line:

That thing was a massive blast, upper deck shot, and Schwarber’s second in three games. He looks good doing it, too, eh?

That homer was Schwarber’s 22nd on the year, in which he’s so close to getting over that “average” threshold. He’s up to .202/.314/.444, which is a 97 wRC+ (3 percent worse than average).
