CHICAGO – A Chicago Cubs fan took a very special guest to Tuesday’s Game 4 at Wrigley:  Her late father.

Yes, you read that right, her late father.

“My dad grew up in the neighborhood,” Cheryl, who is a partial-season-ticket holder said.  “He just would have loved every minute of this.”

She brought her father’s ashes in a pill bottle, as she has done with many games.

“I have the safety cap on so he doesn’t spill everywhere.”

Cheryl already has her ticket for a possible Oct. 30 game – and yes, he father will be there too.
