Cubs manager Joe Maddon turned Wrigley Field into a petting zoo for his players on Tuesday, but he wasn’t done with the exotic animals. Maddon brought a cheetah to the field before batting practice on Wednesday, so of course the players took selfies with it.

Joe Maddon’s motivational techniques are certainly out of the box.
