David Bote Crushes the First Homer of His Career (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

Over the past couple years, utility prospect David Bote became a home run threat in the minor leagues, going deep 26 times in his last 180 or so games, after previously homering just 25 times in the first 400+ games of his career.
