Bartman Receives a Cubs World Series Ring

Trying to finally put the “Bartman play” to rest, the Cubs have awarded the beleaguered fan an official 2016 World Series ring.

Steve Bartman reached out and deflected a foul ball along the left-field wall at Wrigley Field during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS against the then-Florida Marlins. Chicago went on to squander a lead in that game as the Marlins tied the series, and the Cubs lost Game 7 to continue the franchise’s epic World Series drought, blaming Bartman in the process.
