WATCH: Umpire forces Eddie Butler to cut his long-sleeves during game


by - Senior Editor -

Friday night's game with the Cubs and Pirates was crazy to say the least.

In the top of the second inning, the home umpire came out and made Cubs starter Eddie Butler change his long sleeves under his jersey to short sleeves. The Cubs obliged as the athletic trainer visited the pitching mound and did the tailering so Butler could start pitching again in his Negro League throwback jersey.

Check out the strange video below.
