MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — Chicago Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber is a man of many talents.
He became a household name after smashing a home run during the NLDS that landed a ball on top of Wrigley’s right field video board, and now we’re learning he’s talented singer and dancer, too.
When Schwarber was a student at Middletown High School in Ohio, he was part of the show choir group called Purple Pizzazz. The video from a 2010 concert, and you can see Schwarber is in the center of the group of guys — check out those moves!
In the clip below, you can see him bust a move on the far right in the second row:
Back in 2011, he was even written about in a local paper, The Journal News:
“Kyle Schwarber dances front and center. The senior’s performance at the high school’s POPS Concert on Thursday was his last with Purple Pizzazz.
It was a natural time to look back.
“I was the guy who was struggling to pick up the dance steps — I couldn’t really sing,” Schwarber said of his initial experiences with the group.
An acclaimed varsity athlete on the Middies’ football and baseball teams, he eventually found his stride.
“I wouldn’t take it back,” he said. “It’s probably one of the better experiences of being in high school.”
