Cubs and Dodgers forget number of outs, hang out on field after inning ends

We've seen before that, on occasion, baseball players can forget the number of outs in an inning. There are 162 games in a season, meaning each player experiences roughly 4,374 outs per year. It can be hard to keep track of them all.

But rarely do we see everyone on the field seem to forget the situation. Yet, on Saturday, that's exactly what happened at Wrigley Field, as both the Dodgers and Cubs momentarily thought baseball featured four outs per half-inning:

Eventually, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez spoke up, reminding everyone on the field that the inning had, in fact, ended:

Let this be your daily reminder: 3 outs per half-inning, friends. 3 outs.
