The Cubs Have Enshrined the Kyle Schwarber Home Run Ball Atop the Right Field Video Board as a Tribute to the Baseball Gods (Pics)
Remember how it seemed like that Kyle Schwarber home run against the Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLDS was never going to come down? Well, it didn’t come down. As it turns out, the ball didn’t land on Sheffield Avenue, nor did it bounce off one of the buildings across the street. It actually landed on the top of the new right field video board.
On Wednesday, Cubs employees climbed up there, found the ball, and confirmed its authenticity by checking the official postseason stamp. But they did not remove it. Instead, the Cubs decided to cover the ball with a plexiglas shelter and leave it right where they found it as a shrine to the baseball gods, who blessed the Cubs bats so that they might smite the evil Cardinals with a historic power surge.

Of course, should the Cubs go on to win the World Series for the first time since 1908, you know that ball will stay up there forever.
