I saw this on ESPN & It's very interesting

I actually remember seeing this incident with Steve Bartmen happen and now that it had been brought up recently, I flashed back to that moment. This documentary shows many vantage points from those who witnessed the infamous play that some would debate had caused the Chicago Cubs to go to the World Series. Too see how this unfortunate individual was treated after the questionable interference took place is beyond disbelief. The whole time I watched this man sit frozen in his seat being taunted with angry remarks and doused with alcohol, I was thinking "Seriously, it's only a baseball game". From watching the film, I learned that this man did what anybody else would do at a baseball game by reaching out to catch a foul ball. To say he costs the Chicago Cubs the chance to play at the World Series is ridiculous.

I believe people sometimes fall and those whom get back up are the true Champions. As history shows us, Chicago let one play break them and It was the opposing team who capitalized on the opportunity to steal the victory. To point the finger at Steve Bartmen and rest the blame on his shoulders is unfair. You have to believe that the pitcher made many mistakes which would be the real reason the Cubs lost otherwise, how else do you explain the Florida Marlins bringing in 8 home runs?

As far as the film is concerned, I enjoyed watching it. It was very educational and was very interesting but I do feel really bad that Steve Bartmen was treated so badly by the so called Cubs Fans. If anything, this film will teach you to treat others the way you want to be treated because you never know when you might be sitting in the same seat. You really have to stop and think about how this could have happened to anyone. Only then, I think you might gain an understanding of what Steve Bartmen was going through at that time. It could of happened to anybody. Unfortunately, it happened to Steve Bartmen.

Unfortunate times

This is a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. How a lifetime Cubs fans life changed forever in the matter of a single play. Performing an act any fan in his seat would have done. And how it's haunted him for 8 years. Must See!

Unguarded

One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves the resiliency in people and a great story to share with your family.
