STL Post Dispatch wrote:So who is The Fan?
Moises Alou's arm is seen reaching into the stands unsuccessfully for a foul ball against the Florida Marlins.

CHICAGO -- The 26-year-old man who deflected the ball during the Chicago Cubs playoff game is a huge Cubs fan and youth baseball coach who would never do anything to hurt his favorite team, according to neighbors.

"They say if you are a Cubs fan, you won't catch it," said a 63-year-old neighbor of the man, who lives with his parents in suburban Chicago. "I don't think that's a natural reaction. It's a natural reaction to catch the ball."

The Associated Press, like most local media, was holding off on naming the man. The Chicago Sun-Times, however, reported on its web site that the man is Steve Bartman, 26, an employee at Hewitt Associates, an international consulting firm in Lincolnshire.

The man's father also defended his son, who deflected the ball just as Cubs outfielder Moises Alou appeared to be about to catch it for a second out in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's game. The Marlins ultimately scored eight runs that inning on their way to an 8-3 win over the Cubs, sending the series to a final seventh game Wednesday night.

"I taught him well," his father said to reporters in brief comments before going inside his home. "I taught him to catch foul balls when he comes near them."

The man had to be escorted by security guards out of Wrigley Field in the bottom of the eighth inning after he was threatened and pelted with debris by other fans.

The man works at a consulting firm in the suburbs, and a spokeswoman there said he did not go to work Wednesday because of the incident. The father said his son was not available to talk.

His friends said baseball is the man's favorite sport and the Cubs are his favorite team. Both were on display Tuesday night, as the man sported a Cubs hat and a sweat shirt bearing the name of the team he played for as a youth and now coaches.

"He's one of the biggest Cubs fans I know," said a 34-year-old neighbor who has known the man since he was a child. "Whenever he can he goes to games."

The man's actions created a national buzz on radio talk shows. And television programs repeatedly showed his attempt to catch the ball.

Neighbors said the man's actions were being blown out of proportion. "I can't fault him," said the 63-year-old neighbor. "My belief is that plays are made on the field, not in the stands."

Pat Looney, a Chicago firefighter who was seated next to the man, said there was no misconduct. "He wasn't leaning over. He was behind the rail, he didn't know Alou was coming," Looney said.

In downtown Chicago, others who do not know the fan, agreed. "You can't really blame that one fan for trying to get a souvenir," said John Sullivan, 55, of Lake Villa.

"If I was there, I would have done the same thing," said Sullivan, who was wearing a Cubs baseball cap.

Even Alou, who was initially furious about what happened, seemed to soften later. "At the time, I was real upset," he said Tuesday night. "But at same time, I kind of feel bad for the guy now, because every fan in every ballpark, their first reaction is they want a souvenir. Nobody's going to think about the outcome of the game."


Just thought we should get to know the goat. I'd do the FLA thing if I was him ...

who gets him first. .... Letterman or Leno ??

You know what's ridiculous.....the following web addresses have already been registered by the following idiot:

I'd guess the email address is a phony, but I'm assuming he feels it's ok to give out people's personal info since he's trying to take advantage of that poor guy.
