VIDEO: Cubs’ Junior Lake Wears Wrong Jersey
In today’s afternoon matchup between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, there was an unusual mishap.
During beginning of the game, Cubbies outfielder Junior Lake wore the wrong jersey. Lake didn’t realize it until the bottom of the 1st inning when fellow teammate and outfielder Emilio Bonafacio pointed out the different jersey he was wearing in contrast to his teammates.
When the young outfielder took note of the jersey mistake and went into the clubhouse to change, his reaction was priceless:

Thankfully for Lake jersey mishaps/malfunctions are a common occurrence. It’s easy for the mixup due to the Cubs planning to wear 10 different throwback uniforms in honor of 100 years of Wrigley Field.
Also, the Cubs and Pirates played almost 6 hours and 16 innings of baseball last night so Lake could very well have woken up on the wrong side of the bed.
