FLORIDA – Cubs reliever Travis Wood is already having an adventurous offseason.

Wood is known for being tough on the mound, but he certainly proved his mettle off the field while golfing with former Red Sox first baseman Kevin Millar.

 

Millar posted a video of Wood posing a few feet away from an alligator the two came across while looking for a place to drop.

Wood eventually shooed it back into the water, albeit from a safe distance with a pair of golf clubs in hand.
