Cubs first baseman Frank Schwindel responded to Stephen Colbert’s misplaced shot at him on The Late Show.

Schwindel crashed during Sunday’s 18–4 loss to the Yankees and allowed Kyle Higashioka to hit a 35 mph home run on the field.

Colbert made the point on his show this week, saying, “I’m not a baseball player, and apparently neither is Frank Schwindel.”

“I didn’t appreciate it,” Schwindel said on Thursday. “I’d like to see him do it.”

Obviously positional players don’t do their best when taking the mound to avoid the risk of injury. Schwindel also usually casts an eephus, a deliberately high arched pitch.

For what it’s worth, he did touch 69 mph during a pitching appearance in Wednesday’s breakout loss to the Padres.

He’s hit three pitches this season, hitting four home runs.
