An Interview with Steve Bartman

Searching for Bartman via MetaFilter

This story was fascinating. During the 2003 Baseball season, Steve Bartman caught a ball and gained a run for the opposing team, keeping the Cubs once again from the World Series. Suddenly a pariah in Chicago -- and reviled and tortured by Cubs fans -- he basically disappeared from view. In this article, an ESPN reporter goes in search of Steve Bartman, and finds him...

"Steve," I tell him, "I've got one thing before I leave. Regardless of what I do for a living, regardless of the way this all might seem to you, I want to apologize. I want to genuinely apologize, on behalf of all Cub fans, for all the crap you've had to deal with.

"I think it could have been any one of us. And I truly wish you the best. I truly hope you're able to move on and live a happy and prosperous life."
