Cubs haven't even started Spring Training and Kyle Schwarber already broke a windshield with a HR
You already know about the man, the myth and the legend that is Kyle Schwarber. You know that he had three multi-homer regular season games during his rookie season. You know that he called his shot in Game 4 of the NLDS (another multi-HR game). You know that he planted a ball on the Wrigley Field videoboard that was briefly preserved as some sort of modern art masterpiece.
So, you probably won't be all that surprised to learn that before Cubs Spring Training had even officially started, Schwarber mashed a homer out of the ballpark and into the windshield of a car parked out in the stadium lot:

After practice, Schwarber caught a glimpse of his destruction and did his due diligence via Twitter:
