Chicago Cubs players crash head on

The Chicago Cubs have started the Major League Baseball season in a way that only the Cubs really could.

The Cubs notched their first win of the season today, but you can guarantee they went about it in a manner that would make the 'Keystone Cops' proud.

Trailing by a single run late on, Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Gaby Sanchez tries to get in a bunt on a pitch from Cubs closer Pedro Strop.

Unfortunately for Sanchez - among others - the ball pops up off his bat and into the air in perfect catching range.

Well maybe it was a bit too perfect. Strop sprints to the ball to make the play, but so does catcher John Baker.

Strop collected the catch to take the out, but he also got a big piece of Baker's face in the process, and he went tumbling down to the floor after the collision that would be only made even more brilliant if it had Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' played over the top.

Strop was okay but Baker wasn't so lucky. His helmet flying, Baker hit the floor with an almighty thud and looked stone cold knocked out. Thankfully he came out unscathed and was conscious as the Cubs recorded a 3-2 victory on the road.

That wasn't the only comical moment from the team everyone loves to make fun of. 

Junior Lake managed to play the first innings wearing the wrong uniform before running to the clubhouse to correct his gaffe. Not before becoming the butt of the internet's jokes for a good while.

Oh the Cubs, we've missed you.
