Kyle Schwarber is a Cincinnati-area kid who grew up a Reds fan. He’s also a member of the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs, one of the most exciting young hitters to emerge on the big league scene in recent years.
He’s also a big fan of Joey Votto, and specifically, he’s a fan of Votto’s approach at the plate. In the video linked below (click on the MLB image; MLB.com is screwy and won’t let us embed the video), Schwarber talks about his admiration for Votto and how he tries to model his own approach on Votto’s.
