In the history of the Cubs, the team has seen black cats mysteriously appear on the field, thwarted flag burners in the outfield and dealt with a fan attack on one of their pitchers.
After last night’s game against the Florida Marlins in Miami, add one more crazy moment to the list.
A naked male streaker decided to insert himself into the game in the fifth inning, sprinting onto the field and performing a floppy dance in center field. “Dougie” it was not.
Instead of dancing with the stars, the wild-haired intruder was quickly partnered with security for a “Jailhouse Shuffle.”
‘‘That was awesome,’’ Cubs catcher Koyie Hill said. ‘‘That guy gave a good effort.’’
The streaker might have worked as a good luck charm for the Cubs, as they rallied to defeat the Marlins 7-5.
