Steve Bartman has received an official Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Championship ring as a special gift
from the Ricketts family and the Cubs organization.

Arguably the team's most infamous fan, Bartman is remembered for tipping a foul ball that left fielder
Moises Alou unsuccessfully tried to catch in Game 6 of the 2003 National League Championship Series.

Now, 14 years later, Cubs owner Tom Ricketts thought it was high time to extend an olive branch.

Bartman received the ring before noon Monday in Ricketts' office. Cubs President of Baseball Operations
Theo Epstein and President of Operations Crane Kenney were also present. Ricketts then showed Bartman
around Wrigley a bit, so he could see what was new since he'd last been to the park.
