Former Flame Kyle Schwarber Helps Lift the Curse! -
10 months ago, Kyle Schwarber was a rookie phenom and the keynote speaker at the 1st annual Cincy Flames banquet. Today, he is a World Series Champion. Schwarber was activated for the World Series after rehabbing a knee injury that he suffered only a few games into the season. He was used as the team's designated hitter in game played in Cleveland, and the Cubs amassed a 3-1 record in those games. Kyle now has 16 hits in 44 postseason at bats, good for a .364 batting average. The future looks bright for the Cubs and Schwarber, and we can't wait to watch it all unfold! Congratulations to the Cubs and to Kyle - 2016 World Series Champions!!
