Cubs pitcher Eddie Butler had to have the white long sleeves on his throwback jersey cutoff.  Prior to throwing a pitch in the first inning a trainer cut the sleeves off so the hitters could see the baseball.  The uniform alteration did the trick and the hitters saw the ball just fine as Butler gave up 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings.  That’s an alteration to a throwback jersey Chris Sale would be proud of.- TO
