Bartman gets a ring.
CHICAGO» Steve Bartman is getting a World Series championship ring from the Cubs.
The Cubs announced 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 has avoided the spotlight since.
Footnote. A weeksold giraffe at the Fort Worth Zoo has been named Beltre in honor of Rangers slugger Adrian Beltre and his 3,000th career hit.
