Hitting home runs has become second nature for Indiana slugger Kyle Schwarber. But hitting a go-ahead homer in the Big Ten championship game at TD Ameritrade Park probably meant a little more to the Hoosiers’ junior catcher than his previous 37 home runs.
With the game tied 3-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning, Schwarber stepped up to the plate and launched a solo shot into the right field stands on a 1-0 pitch. It looks like Schwarber knew it was gone the second he hit it as he flips his bat and shows a bit of swag before jogging around the bases.
Schwarber was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Big Ten Tournament after going 5-for-15 with two home runs, five RBIs and one awesome bat flip.
Enjoy Big Ten fans.
