If you were watching video from the Cubs participating in the festivities at the Little League Classic and thought you were seeing things, fear not. That really was Mark Zagunis.

The outfielder isn’t there at the expense of another player, though, as both the Cubs and Pirates are permitted a 26th man.
While the Cubs haven't announced it, outfielder Mark Zagunis was among the players with the team in Williamsport today. Cubs and Pirates are permitted a 26th man (position player) for tonight's Little League Classic.
