CHICAGO — A friendly game of one–upmanship between Cardinals players during Sunday’s round of batting practice resulted in a shattered window outside the “friendly confines”
According to KTVI, players Mark Reynolds and Matt Holliday took turns blasting pitches out of Wrigley Field and onto Waveland Avenue. One of Reynolds’ shots took out a second-floor apartment window.
The tenant, David Brown, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he opted to catch batting practice before heading to the beach that afternoon. Brown said he and his roommates have lived in the apartment for more than a year.
Brown taped a sheet of paper to the unbroken top section of the window: 460. That’s the distance from home plate to his window.
