The Chicago Cubs Have Signed Matt Szczur

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs keep chipping away at their draft picks this year, now having signed the bulk of the first 20 picks.

The Cubs announced Thursday they have signed fifth-round Draft pick Matt Szczur of Villanova. A two-sport star in baseball and football, he was the first .400 hitter for Villanova this season since 1997, batting .443 (77-for-174).

Here’s hoping Szczur becomes a huge star for the Cubs, but then changes his last name so that I don’t have to type it frequently.

The team still has more than a month to come to terms with the rest of their picks.
