Team Japan Prank on Cubs Goes Too Far?

The Cubs’ split-squad is taking on team Japan today in what was supposed to be a friendly match.

Not too sure if Team Japan got that memo or not, as one of their team members came out to the mound during warm up wearing a jersey with number 104 on the back as reported and tweeted by Gordon Wittenmyer.

This is a reference to how many years the Cubs have gone without winning the World Series.

Funny as it may be, it’s a pretty tasteless thing to do. As teams who never play each other and have very little familiarity, it just doesn’t show any respect to the opponents.

There’s a time and a place for jokes, but this just goes too far.
