CHICAGO -- It'll take more than a free trip to the Cubs' wild card game for Steve Bartman to go public.

Bartman is the fan who interfered with Moises Alou during the Cubs playoff run in 2003.

He had to be escorted out of Wrigley Field as people threw beer at him and has never spoken publicly about it.

Last week, a GoFundMe page was set up by a Cubs fan to raise money to send Bartman to Pittsburgh for the game Wednesday night.

It raised over $3800.

But he said no, and his spokesperson says he's perfectly capable of paying his own way.

The page is still open, but donations will now go to the Alzheimer’s Association.
