No doubt, it’s been a fun year for the Cubs.

From the player head-rubbing to the Maddon magician, everyone on the team is having a great time.

The latest laugh came from an unnamed coach who gave new meaning to the term, “rally cap.”

During the game against the Giants on Tuesday, two mysterious masked Cubs were photographed wearing medieval armor helmets in the dugout. (Under Armour, are you listening?)

From Carrie Muskat of MLB.com:

Before Tuesday’s game, one of the Cubs coaches walked into manager Joe Maddon’s office at AT&T Park wearing a silver medieval helmet. Maddon, who has been known to do a few outrageous things in the past, wasn’t startled at all. I said, ‘You need to wear that to the bullpen,’ Maddon said. I thought for sure that would’ve happened.

Could Maddon have been referencing his bullpen’s dangerous chicken game with foul balls?
