Cubs' Javier Baez Accidentally Exposed His Eggplant During ESPN's 'Body Issue' Shoot

And people weren't mad.

Published June 29, 2017

Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott certainly got into their respective shoots for ESPN the Magazine's annual "Body Issue."

But perhaps Chicago Cubs second baseman Javier Baez got a little too carried away with his.

While taking swings for his "Body Issue" behind-the-scenes shoot, Baez accidentally exposed his manhood, becoming the first athlete to show off the full package in the magazine's history.

But people weren't mad. In fact, it was much the opposite as the World Series champ instantly gained many new, adoring fans for his eggplant. Let's call it a thirst-trap home run.

  1. Here's Javier Baez's now-infamous Behind-the-scenes Shoot

    Watch the swing closely.

  2. People clearly weren't ready

    Is it hot in here or is it just Javier Baez flashing his eggplant? Um ... the latter.

  3. Women collectively said, 'O-M-G'

    Oh my lawd!!! 😱😱😱 #mcw #javierbaez #chicagocubs

  5. One outlet called him Major League Baseball's first 'Six-tool Player'

    Swinging the lumber just took on a whole new note.

  6. For this week, Baseball had to take a back seat for all of Javier's new fans
