I’m not a baseball fan (or much of a sports fan in general), but this is still an incredible story.
From the Yahoo! Sports website: “It’s an exciting and joyful Thursday for Chicago Cubs fans. Their team is World Series champions! But for some, it’s bittersweet because when your team makes you wait 108 years between World Series victories, there will be friends and family who pass on without ever having seen that promised land. Wayne Williams’ father is one of those Cubs fans. His name was also Wayne, and he died in 1980. Wayne the younger spent all of Wednesday in a car, driving 650 miles from his home in North Carolina to a very important event. But he wasn’t driving to Wrigley Field. His destination was Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery in Greenwood, Indiana, because Wayne had a promise to keep. … He was going to listen to the game with his dad one way or another.”
