Steve Bartman was just a Cubs fan, but when he interfered with a potential out in the 8th inning of game 6 in the 2003 ALCS, he has been shunned by the entire Cubs fan base. The Cubs have not won a world series since 1903 nor have they appeared in one since the 1945 season. Finally after 100 years, the 2003 Chicago cubs were one of the best teams in baseball and were predicted by many to go on and face the New York Yankees in the World series. However when Bartman went after a potential souvenir cause a colossal meltdown. The opposing Florida Marlins ended up turning this into an 8 run inning and went on to win 8-3 and went on to take game 7 and represent the National League in the World series. When Bartman was escorted out of Wrigley Field, he was bombarded with curses and beer cans as he disappeared from the sport forever.
