Steve Bartman

CHICAGO — Since that fateful day in 2003, Chicago Cubs fans everywhere have had a strong hatred for Steve Bartman.

But now one Cubs fan wants to atone and raise money to send Bartman to next week’s wild-card game. So, he created a GoFundMe page. On the page, Keque Escobedo writes:

Lifelong Cubs fan wants to make amends for 2003, lets make it happen. First we need to find him to get him to the big game. If anyone knows where he is at, tell him we are looking for him. The money would pay for his expenses including his ticket, hotel room, flights and a little spending money.

If he cannot be found by time of the big game all the proceeds raised will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Nearly $1,000 has been raised since the page was created Monday. One of the most humorous donations comes from “Moises Alou:”
