The Cubbies Grant Forgiveness

The man blamed by many Chicago Cubs fans for preventing the team from getting to the 2003 World Series is getting a very special gift.  The Cubs owners, the Ricketts family, announced they are giving Steve Bartman a 2016 World Series Championship ring.  Bartman infamously interfered with a foul ball in Game 6 of the 2003 National League Championship Series, causing most fans to blame him for the Cubs’ eventual series loss.  In a statement, the Cubs said, “We hope this provides closure on an unfortunate chapter of the story that has perpetuated throughout our quest to win a long-awaited World Series.  We felt it was important Steve knows he has been and continues to be fully embraced by this organization.”

And in case you missed it, here’s a look at the incident!
