SHARE Steve Bartman refuses to attend Cubs playoff game

Cubs fans are excited to see their team in the playoffs once again. They are so ecstatic that they are willing to forgive a team nemesis.

This week, a Cubs fan set up a GoFundMe page to send Steve Bartman to the team’s upcoming wild card game. Despite the fan’s efforts, Bartman decided to decline the offer.

From ESPN:

But according to Bartman’s spokesman: He has no intention of being at the wild card game. Steve is glad the money will go to a good cause and will be cheering on the Cubs as always.

Bartman will forever be remembered for this catch many would later blame for the Cubs losing the game — and eventually, the series.

According to Bartman’s camp, if he doesn’t go, the money raised will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.
