Milwaukee Brewers prospect Jacob Nottingham learned the hard way that he has to be careful where he parks his car at the team's spring training complex.

Especially when he is scheduled to take batting practice that day.

On Saturday, the 20-year-old catcher tweeted a photo of his car's windshield—which was broken by a ball Nottingham hit. 

The good news for Nottingham is he has some pop in his bat. The bad news is his car has to go to the shop as a result.

It appears as though someone is willing to help him with his little problem:

Next time, either park away from the field or carpool with a teammate.
