Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant has tremendous power. In fact, one could conclude he’s among the most powerful hitters in the game of baseball. Fresh off celebrating his team’s World Series win from a season ago, Bryant and the Cubs are taking on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field on Saturday.
Bryant surely didn’t disappoint the Cubs’ faithful during the holiday weekend matinee.

Yes, that’s a homer off the video board at Wrigley, representing just the sixth time this has happened in the history of the park.
In what can’t be considered a surprise, four of them have come off the bat of Mr. Bryant himself.
Bryant's HR was 6th off LF video board (he's now hit 4 of those). #Cubs

Ultimately, the Cubs would go on to hit for a cycle in the first inning off Pirates starter Tyler Glasnow.
Lovable losers no more.
