CHICAGO — Steve Bart­man is get­ting a World Se­ries cham­pi­onship ring from the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs an­nounced Mon­day they were giv­ing a ring to the fan re­mem­bered for de­flect­ing a foul ball that ap­peared des­tined to land in left fielder Moises Alou’s glove with Chicago five outs from the World Se­ries in 2003. Bart­man was ha­rassed af­ter the in­ci­dent and has avoided the spot­light since. Chicago beat Cleve­land last fall for its first cham­pi­onship since 1908l. The Cubs say they “hope this pro­vides clo­sure on an un­for­tu­nate chap­ter” and Bart­man “con­tin­ues to be fully em­braced by this or­ga­ni­za­tion.”
