Kerry Wood fought a Cubs teammate -- but who?

SHARE Kerry Wood fought a Cubs teammate -- but who?

Sammy Sosa’s smashed boom box, the date of the Ferris Bueller game, the pictures Milton Bradley had on Jim Hendry … Now add this to the list of big Cubs mysteries:

Talking about the Cubs’ most recent public dustup between teammates, Kerry Wood revealed Friday that he, too, once fought with a Cub teammate.

Of course, that’s about all he revealed.

“It happens every year,” he said Friday after pitching a 1-2-3 inning against Kansas City. “I’ve been involved in them before when [the media] didn’t even know about it. It happens. You never like to see it happen where anybody else can see it but it is what it is.”

Wait a minute, Wood in a fight with a teammate? Which one?

“You should have been there,” he said, smiling.

When? What managerial regime? What era?

“Back when I played the first time,” he said, smiling again.

No kidding. That narrows it to maybe a couple hundred guys from 1998 through 2008.

One of his catchers? Another pitcher? Sammy?

Who, where, when?

“I don’t remember.”
