Cubs: Matt Szczur left his mark – with a borrowed bat, a bloop and a blast

With good news related to baseball as widespread as rain in the desert lately, it’s tough to get excited for much of anything MLB-related lately. We’ll keep our fingers crossed but the confidence in the leadership and future of the league has got to be at an all-time low. In other news, former Cubs outfielder Matt Szczur announced his retirement from baseball. While he never blew anyone away with his production, he made some great memories during his time in Chicago.

Old Friend Matt Szczur is Officially Hanging ‘Em Up

Matt Szczur is one of those players who is as well known for the extra stuff as he is for his baseball playing, but in his case, that’s far from an insult. The guy was a great football player in college. He’s a ridiculously good artist. He has great taste in bats. He gave bone marrow to a stranger, saving her life and inspiring so many others to join the bone marrow registry (me included). There was just so much to root for.
