In case you haven’t noticed, the Major League Baseball season is well under way – and the Chicago Cubs are 25-8, in first place by seven games over the Pittsburgh Pirates, a divisional rival whom they play this weekend.
Yes, this could be the year Cubs fans have been waiting for for 108 years (they last won a World Series in 1908 – back-to-back WS wins, to be true to baseball history). And few Cubs’ fans have been waiting as long as this Chicago centenarian featured in a Spring training story back in March of this year.
Our local Fox News station carried the noteworthy news, no doubt realizing there are plenty of us die-hard Cubbies’ followers in West Michigan. Below find the summary of the story and then a video clip of the full story on Kate Harris and her love for the Cubs (follow the link below).
Cubs fans everywhere are crossing their fingers that this is finally the year. Few have lived through more of the team’s ups and downs than Chicago native Kate Harris. As she approaches her 100th birthday, the Cubs gave her a gift she’ll never forget. She threw out the first pitch at today’s Spring Training game against the Diamondbacks.
Harris says she wants to live to see a Cubs World Series win and thinks this is the year – but of course she’s been saying that since she was 12 years old and became a Cubs fan while home with Scarlet Fever.
