As we enter the stretch run in the 2008 baseball season, it’s starting to look pretty clear that the Chicago Cubs are going to win the NL Central and get back to the playoffs for the second straight year. Of course, for Cubs fans, it’s already a special season because it marks the 100-year anniversary of their last World Series title, and for some reason they actually believe the team will finally win this season.
So while the rest of the world can’t wait to see how they blow it this time, Cubbie fans are lining up just for the chance to have any part in this oh-so-magical of seasons. Some of them were even born for just such an occasion, as is the case for a seven-year-old who has been beaten up by White Sox fans throughout his childhood. Little Wrigley Fields will get to throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field on August 29th.
