On Tuesday, October 14, 2003, Steve Bartman — a 26-year old global human resources company worker from Chicago, Illinois — entered the halls of baseball history when he (along with many others) tried to catch a foul ball that was also being caught by Moises Alou of the Chicago Cubs. Bartman succeeded, Alou failed and the Cubs lost the National League Championship Series. Some Cubs fans made Bartman their modern day goat necessitating the following formal apology:
"There are few words to describe how awful I feel and what I have experienced within these last twenty-four hours. I am so truly sorry from the bottom of this Cubs fan's broken heart.
I ask that Cub fans everywhere redirect the negative energy that has been vented towards my family, my friends and myself into the usual positive support for our beloved team on their way to being National League champs." - Steve Bartman
How do you feel about this particular incident? Were the fans entitled to the ball? Was Steve Bartman responsible (even partly) for the Cubs loss? Do you think Moises Alou would have caught the ball? Share your opinion on Baseball Fever.
