Visit Steve Bartman’s seat in Wrigley Field: aisle 4, row 8, seat 113

One of my goals this summer is to sit in Steve Bartman’s infamous seat at Wrigley Field. The seat that on October 14, 2003, the Cubs were just 5 outs from winning the National League playoffs and going to the World Series. But then Steve Bartman interferred.

I was there that day, standing in the streets beyond left field with the masses of people. Just a mere 141 feet away from the incident.

Get the full experience of sitting in Bartman’s seat via this youtube video that was featured in the ESPN special on Steve Bartman.

    I’m surprised Bartman’s seat wasn’t removed, blown up and put into the spaghetti sauce at Harry Carey’s just like the infamous ball was!

    I was out there in left field with you too! That was some bullshit, they should remove that seat from the stands

    Did you get a chance to sit in the seat?

    how about taking all of your loser excuses and blowing them up. real winners don’t throw temper tantrums like moises alou…nor would their feelings be hurt during the rest of the playoffs.

    I almost sat in his seat once after a game, but there was a line of people waiting! And the seat isn t even marked or anything, yet people KNOW it s HIS seat.

    I remember that! wasnt it just before the Cub’s shortstop booted a double play ball and the pitcher gave up a 5 run lead? At least Cubs fans are always self loathing enough to blame it on one of their own. a little league coach who grew up idolizing the cubs. Stay Classy Chicago!

    I’ve said this before, and I think we talked about this on Twitter once, but I WAS THERE, TOO! I held a tiny TV up tuned to WGN and had at least 30 people behind me watching on a screen not 2 inches by 2 inches.
