Cubs pitcher wears non-Cubs helmet to batter's box

Chicago Cubs newcomer Eddie Butler started Monday's game against the Miami Marlins on Monday night. An interesting thing happened as he came up to bat in the second inning with a non-Cubs batting helmet on.

The decal must have fallen off during the game because I can't imagine him picking that helmet. During the game on the pitching side, Butler retired 16 of the 20 batters that he faced.
