On Oct. 1, 1932, Babe Ruth reportedly called his home run while facing Charlie Root at Wrigley Field. According to some reports, the ball even cleared the scoreboard.
Eighty-three years later, another large, hulking left-handed slugger did the same.
After hitting a home run out of PNC Park in the Wild Card Game, and hitting an opposite-field dinger in the second inning on Monday, Kyle Schwarber gave the Cubs a little breathing room in Game 4 when he launched a shot that cleared the scoreboard. Though this time it was to right field instead of center.
Turns out Schwarber called this one, too:
The homer would end up being the final run in the Cubs' 6-4 victory as they head to their first NLCS since 2003.
