Cubs Pitcher Forced to Change Gloves Due to American Flag Patch

Chicago Cubs reliever Luke Little said he had to change his glove before he entered Wednesday night’s 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros because of an American flag patch.

“The issue was the American flag was on his glove,” Manager Craig Counsell told The Associated Press. “Pitchers’ gloves, they’re pretty strict about not having white on the pitchers’ gloves. Apparently the flag had what could be a distraction to the hitter.”

After the game Little posted on X, “ Proud to be an American … Go Cubs Go, ” along with a flag emoji and a GIF of Hulk Hogan playing a guitar in front of Old Glory.

“The clubbies told me that they had got an email from MLB that I’m not allowed to wear it,” he told The Associated Press. “But I just didn’t assume that they were just going to just cut me. It’s not like it has an advantage in the game. It’s not like it blinds the hitters. Just representing my country.

“Just a whole debacle. Got to get ready without it and throw through it.”
