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.
