I'd be moving very quickly if I was that guy.

I'm sure that he was listening to the game on the radio and wasn't paying attention that the ball would have been caught by Alou. Yes, Alou would have caught the ball. It certainly changed the momentum of the game, and Prior was gold up until that point.

That fan better hope that the Cubs win game 7. :-o

Everyone keeps talking about that guy but what about the other guy (in the grey sweatshirt)? He was involved as well.

That play had nothing to do with losing the game. It's not like Jeffrey Mayer years ago where they awarded a HR. It was a foul ball and under the circumstances, I am sure that 99.9% of us would have done the same thing. Reflexes dictate that when you see a ball coming towards you at a game, you try to catch it. If baseball doesn't want this to happen, let them rope off the first few rows. If the Cubs made the pitches and could catch the ball, they would have won.

If he moves to Atlanta, he'll not be welcome. The only safe place (the only moderately safe place) will be Miami. Too many cubs fans everywhere.

i like to think i would have done the right thing in a similar situation but more than likely my first instinct would have been to try to catch the ball. i feel sorry for the guy. its not like he jumped onto the field or did anything against the rules. i am sure he feels bad enough about it; he doesnt need people throwing their beers on him. a ball hit into the stands is fair game. he didnt lose the game, the cubs did.

I can't believe that poor guy needed an escort. I despise the kind of fans that think they need to "avenge" themselves on other fans. Those kind of fans are LOSERS that need to get a life. As great as baseball is, it is ONLY a game. It shouldn't be that important in a person's life. End of story...

GO CUBBIES! ;-D

Has anyone even considered that this guy might actually be Jeffery Mayer? That the Yankees were afraid of a Prior/Wood combo and decided to send in Mayer to hand the game to the Marlins? Why isn't there an investigation into this?

Here's what the fan had to say:

Statement from Cubs fan who deflected foul ball


October 15, 2003
Statement released Wednesday by Cubs fan Steve Bartman, who deflected a foul ball in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series:

``There are few words to describe how awful I feel and what I have experienced within these last 24 hours.

I've been a Cub fan all my life and fully understand the relationship between my actions and the outcome of the game. I had my eyes glued on the approaching ball the entire time and was so caught up in the moment that I did not even see Moises Alou, much less that he may have had a play.

Had I thought for one second that the ball was playable or had I seen Alou approaching I would have done whatever I could to get out of the way and give Alou a chance to make the catch.

To Moises Alou, the Chicago Cubs organization, Ron Santo, Ernie Banks, and Cub fans everywhere I am so truly sorry from the bottom of this Cubs fan's broken heart.

I ask that Cub fans everywhere redirect the negative energy that has been vented towards my family, my friends, and myself into the usual positive support for our beloved team on their way to being National League champs.''

Yeah, that quote was shown by FOX while the sox game was playing.
As for his pleas, it all depends on the outcome of game 7.. I myself agree with LCBOY, there should be no reason to harm Bartman, but not everyone is like you and me.
