On this date in 2003, with the Cubs holding a 3-0 lead against the Marlins and needing only 6 more outs to advance to the World Series, the Cubs give up 8 runs and come apart after a fan, Steve Bartman sitting along the left field foul line at Wrigley Field attempts to catch a foul ball that may have been caught by Cubs left fielder Moises Alou.
"You know what the funny thing is? I wouldn't have caught it anyway." - Moises Alou (2008)
