CHICAGO, IL (KTVI) – A friendly game of one–upmanship between Cardinals players during Sunday’s round of batting practice resulted in a shattered window outside the “friendly confines.”

Players Mark Reynolds and Matt Holliday took turns blasting pitches out of Wrigley Field and onto Waveland Avenue. One of Reynolds’ shots took out a second-floor apartment window.

The tenant, David Brown, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he opted to catch batting practice before heading to the beach that afternoon. Brown said he and his roommates have lived in the apartment for more than a year.

Brown taped a sheet of paper to the unbroken top section of the window: 460. That’s the distance from home plate to his window.
