In 2003, Steve Bartmanʹs (no relation to Matt Groeningʹs creation) name will go down in Chicago Cub lore along with those of Leon Durham, Ernie Broglio and Billy Sianis as reasons the Cubbies havenʹt been to the World Series since 1945. Bartman is the unfortunate 26-year-old Cub fan who on that night reached for a foul ball in the eighth inning of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series between the Cubs and Florida Marlins. Cub outfielder Moises Alou appeared set to catch the ball for the second out of the inning before Bartman got his hands on it. The Marlins went on to an eight-run inning, winning the game and then beating the Cubs again in the following nightʹs Game 7 to advance to the World Series. Bartman has been scapegoated throughout Chicago and the nation (even though, two batters later, Cub shortstop Alex Gonzalez committed an error on a likely double-play ball that would have ended the inning with the Cubs up 3-1).
