Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields was seen hitting home runs at Wrigley Field during Cubs batting practice. Could he be a two-sport star?
This is not a question to be taken literally, of course. Fields is committed to football, as he should be considering the Bears are in the midst of a rebuild.
Fields was a highly-touted shortstop back in high school in Georgia, and while he didn’t play baseball in college to focus on his football career, Fields was recruited to the diamond during his time at Ohio State. After thinking over the matter, he opted not to take the Kyler Murray route and play both sports.
Fields decision to play football clearly worked out, as he was drafted in the first round by the Bears, and is now their starting quarterback making millions of dollars on his rookie deal. But that doesn’t mean he can’t take some hacks.
Bears: Justin Fields hit bombs at Wrigley Field
Fields is an avid supporter of Chicago sports, and hasn’t chosen an allegiance between the Cubs and White Sox. He’s thrown out the first pitch at Guaranteed Rate Field on the South Side. Fields is a man of the people.

Fields still has plenty of work to do on the football field before he’s a reliable passer, and the long-term answer at quarterback. Chicago believes him to be the future, and he’ll have time to prove them right.
As for his baseball career — let’s put that on hold for now, despite the impressive swing.
