Manny Ramirez Smashes his First Home Run With Iowa (VIDEO)

Manny Ramirez was one of my favorite players to watch growing up, I saw his whole career, and now he’s playing in the Cubs organization, it’s odd. But last night he showed that he could still destroy a baseball, he had a solid night, he went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI’s, and a run scored in Iowa’s comeback win.

Kyle Schwarber Continues to Roll

It’s been a busy few weeks for Kyle Schwarber.  Drafted by the Cubs in early June, goes to Boise Schwarberand demolishes the pitching there, now he finds himself at Kane County, and he continues to mash.  Schwarber is slugging with the best of them right now, and tonight was no different as he went 2-for-3 with a double, his first Low A home run, a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored.

Schwarber is now 15-for-26 as a professional ballplayer, that includes two doubles, a triple, five home runs, and twelve RBI… good Lord.

Video of the home run coming as soon as it is available. We will be at the Cougars game on Sunday, I will get plenty of pictures.

The kid is special, the fans in Tennessee learned that quickly, now the fans in Iowa will figure it out, then… well, Chicago.
