SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — If anyone were to question the loyalty of Cubs fans Scott and Amber McFarland, they would have to look no further then their 4-month-old twins.
Clark and Addison McFarland were born on June 27, 2016 at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield — the same night Cubs’ Kris Bryant made baseball history with his three home runs and two doubles in one game.
Clark and Addison should be familiar to most Cubs fans — that’s the intersection where Wrigley Field stands.
Baby girl Addison was born at 7:50 p.m., weighing 6 pounds 10 ounces. Baby boy Clark was born at 8:14 p.m., weighing 6 pounds 13.5 ounces.
Scott says after months of trying to decide on names for the twins, a friend gave them the idea of Clark and Addison.
“Little did we know they would help break the curse before they were 4 months old!” Scott joked.
Scott says he’s a born and raised Cubs fan, and grew up watching their games on WGN-TV with his grandfather.
Amber was a White Sox fan, until she met Scott and was converted to the “other side.”
The couple has plans to come down to Wrigley Field on Saturday for Game 4 of the World Series, and cheer on their favorite team from their favorite street corner, Clark and Addison.
