CHICAGO -- Cubs fans are still flying high the day after the World Series win.

One community got a very special surprise from a famous neighbor.

Two miles from Wrigley Field, in the North Center neighborhood, a line stretched down the block to meet the Most Valuable Neighbor.

Neighbors of World Series MVP waited for the chance to capture a moment with the Cubs player who captured their hearts.

“It wasn't planned,” Zobrist said. “I just came outside holding baby talking to neighbors.  Next thing you know, people asking for autographs.”

Getting by on just a few hours of sleep, adrenaline and a whole lot of love from his neighbors, Zobrist signed autographs for a few hours.

And even though he didn't get to meet everyone he addressed the crowd saying, “I wish I could sign all night long. God bless …thank you so much!”

They didn't seem to mind.
