- Cubs catcher and Golden Bear John Baker makes history.
When baseball games extend to the wee hours of the morning and the innings hit double digits. Strange things happen. Often times position players are drafted to pitch, mostly to save bullpen arms which may be needed hours later.
What Cubs catcher and Golden Bear John Baker did, however, was something else.
Not only did he pitch a scoreless top of the 16th inning for the Cubs... he remained in the game to bat (as is his day job).
Baker drew a walk leading off the bottom of the 16th, and, well, just watch.
