SHARE Photos: Mark Reynolds sends BP home run through Wrigleyville window

A Chicago resident had his window broken this weekend, but he knows who did it. The problem is the person who did it was taking batting practice at Wrigley Field.

To make matters worse, it wasn’t a Cubs player — but a member of the rival St. Louis Cardinals.

First baseman Mark Reynolds powered a batting practice home run over the Friendly Confines and into a Wrigleyville Rooftop’s window.

The note attached to the broken window states that the owner is going to inform Reynolds’ mother about the incident. Even though he’s playing in one of the biggest stages in baseball, stern words from mom about not breaking nice things may be in order for the 32-year-old.

He could probably make it up to her with a World Series ring this year though.
