Today in Cubs history: October 15

Unfortunately, since the Cubs have rarely been in any sort of action at this time, the only event that I could find for today's date was this:

2003 Steve Bartman, the Cubs fan who deflected a foul ball in Game 6 of the NLCS, releases a statement explaining his actions. During a weepy apology, the 26-year old human resources company worker asks Chicago fans to redirect their negative energy into for positive support for the team during Game 7 of the series.

Please see my October 14th post for a couple of very good links that talk about this.

"There are few words to describe how awful I feel and what I have experienced within these last 24 hours.

I've been a Cub fan all my life and fully understand the relationship between my actions and the outcome of the game. I had my eyes glued on the approaching ball the entire time and was so caught up in the moment that I did not even see Moises Alou, much less that he may have had a play.

Had I thought for one second that the ball was playable or had I seen Alou approaching I would have done whatever I could to get out of the way and give Alou a chance to make the catch.

To Moises Alou, the Chicago Cubs organization, Ron Santo, Ernie Banks, and Cub fans everywhere 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."

Sad...as he didn't owe anyone an apology, but there is a whole fanbase and organization that owe this guy the world.

Right you are Heather. 2003 was the only season in our lifetimes when the Cubs were still involved in game action on this date.

It was not Bartman's fault that the Cubs collapsed. He was just used as a scapegoat for the poor play on the field. Did Bartman get in the way of Alex Gonzalez error on a sure double play?

Or Mark Prior's wildness after the whole incident? I dont' think Bartman threw that wild pitch to the backstop....and it wasn't Bartman that sat on the bench chomping on a special toothpick watching the whole thing completely collapse on the field
