Chicago Cubs owner Theo Epstein decided to take in a game from the stands at Wrigley Field on Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The team owner was spotted sitting among the fans with a fake mustache and a baseball cap in an attempt to conceal his identity, but the Cubs fans found him out anyway.

The incognito Epstein sat in the front row of the bleachers with several other “members of the Cubs front office,” according to The Chicago Tribune.

Apparently this isn’t the first time Theo has gone undercover. While he was general manager of the Boston Red Sox, he left the Fenway Park offices wearing a gorilla suit.

The fake mustache is no new trick either. Epstein apparently wore it in a previous undercover effort to take in a Pearl Jam concert back in 2010.
