Ben Zobrist was joined by Chicago Cubs teammates Kyle Schwarber and Steve Cishek in 
 
wearing black spikes on Monday despite a warning from Major League Baseball that he was 
 
in violation of the sport's uniform regulations.
 
Zobrist posted a letter from MLB on Instagram on Saturday that cited him for violating 
 
regulations requiring at least 51 percent of the exterior of a player's shoes be the club's 
 
designated primary shoe color. For the Cubs, that color is blue.
 
The letter said Zobrist will be subject to discipline, including a fine, if he continued to wear 
 
non-compliant shoes.
 
Zobrist said he planned to contract Joe Torre, MLB's Chief Baseball Officer.
