Cubs Fan Avoids Becoming Next Steve Bartman, Thinks Twice About Grabbing Foul Ball

They say those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and that’s a lesson Chicago Cubs fans apparently have heeded.

No one wants to become the second coming of Steve Bartman, including one heads-up Cubs fan at Game 5 of the World Series at Wrigley Field on Sunday night.

As a fly ball floated down the right field line, the fan had a choice to make: Did he reach over and try to secure the ultimate souvenir — a Cubs World Series ball — or stay back and avoid the potential risk that comes with that move?

In fact, you can almost see the exact moment where he decided he wasn’t going to interfere, allowing¬†Jason Heyward to make an easy, stress-free catch.

The¬†Cubs rewarded that man’s selflessness by winning Game 5 3-2, sending the series back to Cleveland for Game 6 on Tuesday night.
