One longtime Chicago Cubs fan movingly marked the team’s historic win with his late father — who did not live to see it.
Wayne Williams drove from North Carolina to Indiana on Wednesday to listen to Game 7 of the 2016 Major League Baseball World Series with his father, a Cubs superfan who died more than 35 years ago, WTHR reports.
“I talked it out with my boys forever. I let them know that I told my dad we had a pact,” Williams told the station. When the Cubs — not if, when — the Cubs got into the World Series, we would make sure we listen to the games together.”
