Here's a long (but interesting) documentary about the incident. Bartman isn't in it for obvious reasons, but it's worth seeing.
I had completely forgotten the Bartman ball was sold for $100,000, and then blown up.
Cubbie fans and their curses... ever considered that maybe your team just consistently sucks?
The Cubs still could have won that series.
The fact that Cubs fans blame Bartman for that loss speaks volumes for their baseball acumen. What a bunch of maroons.
Biggest case of piling on I'd ever seen.
The motel of lost companions,
Waits with heated pool and bar
A good read.
Ten years later, Cubs’ loss in 2003 NLCS is still not Steve Bartman’s fault.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
Alex Gonzalez owes Steve Bartman a steak dinner or a trip to Hawaii or his career earnings...
1) Gonzalez should have made the play before Bartman even had chance to interfere.
2) Cubs still had Game 7 the next day.
3) Alou reached into the stands, it wasn't him reaching out. In fact in the ESPN documentary Alou says that after watching the replay he doesn't think he could have caught it anyways.
For Cubs fans to blame Bartman is just sad. His life as he knew it was ruined.
