Yesterday, the Chicago Cubs treated the most cherished ball in its franchise’s recent history with the respect and love it deserves by giving it protection from the fall easterly breezes off Lake Michigan.
Kyle Schwarber’s gigantic home run from the National League Division Series Game 4 clincher Tuesday gave Budweiser a good deal more publicity than it already gets and its wound up providing the salty rooftop owners beyond the right field wall another drawing point in spite of their obstructed views.
Such a cherished moment deserves a glass encasement at the least and at the most deserves to always be drawn attention to — we suggest a glowing neon “hit it here” sign, just so time after time left-handed pull hitters can recognize Schwarbs’ gangster as they just barely make it over the ivy or two hop their balls into the new beer garden just below the right-field scoreboard.
