CLEVELAND — One Chicago Cubs fan is going home with more than just memories of watching Game 6 in Cleveland.

Joe Wright is bringing home Addison Russell’s grand slam ball that gave the Cubs a 7-0 lead in the third-inning.

An Indians fan caught the ball, but threw it back onto the field.

The Indians ballboy spotted Wright, and threw it to him.

 

Wright, from Chicago, posted a picture on Facebook saying:

“This is the most unbelievable thing.  The fan who caught the Addison Russell grand slam ball threw it back and the ball boy gave it to me! I’m not kidding!!!”
