Chicago Tribune writer John Kass is calling for Steve Bartman to throw out the first pitch before game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley Field. Bartman became public enemy #1 in Chicago in 2003 after catching a foul ball during a Cubs playoff game. Many blame Bartman’s catch for the team not going to the World Series that year, he apologized to fans before disappearing into a private life. Here’s a video of the incident.
