Ask a Cubs fan about Kyle Schwarber and watch their face light up. The young slugging catcher has torn the cover off the ball for the team this season.
His prowess at the plate isn’t the only thing to love about Schwarber. He’s also got some of the best walk-up music in the bigs.
Cubs hitters, like Anthony Rizzo, have started to switch up their songs from one at bat to the next. In his first appearance Thursday night, Schwarber strolled up to the plate listening to the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony classic, Thuggish Ruggish Bone.

Schwarber was at bat again in the second inning. This time it was Blackstreet’s one-hit-wonder No Diggity. Right on cue, Schwarber hit a monster two-run home run.
For the record, Schwarber was only a one-year-old when Bone Thugs dropped their hit and three whenNo Diggity was released.
