iStock/Thinkstock(MESA, Ariz.) — The Chicago Cubs cuddled up to bear cubs on Friday during spring training in Mesa, Arizona, all thanks to manager Joe Maddon.
According to ESPN, the two 3.5-month-old cubs were brought in from Bearizona Wildlife Park for their first walk on grass. Maddon said the team was asked to name them.
“We’re trying to come up with creative ways to name both cubs as they grow up to be bears,” he said according to ESPN.

Maddon has brought in animals before for his players. Wrigly Field became a miniature zoo last year and in the past he brought a penguin, a python, and a cockatoo to the clubhouse.
