Do you ever look back at a younger phase of your life and wonder: “What in the world was I thinking?” It seems like Cubs second baseman Javy Baez was doing just that on Thursday.

After batting practice before the Cubs’ game against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field, Baez shared a hilarious picture on Twitter in honor of “throwback Thursday.”

Baez posted an old photo of him with his long, curly locks pushed back by a headband. He captioned the photo “ahy mi madre!” which roughly translates to “oh my mother!”

Baez said after the Cubs’ 8-5 win over the Cardinals that he doesn’t know what he would call the look. He believes he was 12 or 13 when the photo was taken.

Baez joked that he wouldn’t recreate the look.

“It takes too long,” Baez laughed.
