cubsfanshelpBaseball has been a popular subject this week with the World Series going on, but this story goes back to a little earlier in the playoffs at Wrigley Field in Chicago. A young lady named Lauren posted the story. She said an older couple made their way over to try to find their seats. They explained that they have season tickets behind the plate, but realized their playoff tickets had them up in the bleachers. If you’ve never been there, the bleachers at Wrigley can be tough to navigate, even on a good day. She said ” Thankfully, there were two kind gentlemen sitting in front of them who noticed the elderly gentleman was having a tough time with the stairs and gently helped him to his seat. Turns out the two men were brothers. One lives in Chicago and the other had flown in to see him from San Diego. During the game they would help the older gentleman stand when the crowd stood and one brother even stayed seated at times so this gentleman could see the game. Lauren said she was touched by how much the couple seemed to enjoy the game, noting that they held hands, he patted her knee, and she would help him stand when there were exciting plays. During the third inning, the elderly woman leaned down and whispered something to Lauren that left her in tears and made this day and this game unforgettable. She said, “He’s going through chemo right now. We have done about everything else we can do and this is the last step.” Just after she said that, the older man leaned over and happily told his wife, “I just love this!” Lauren said she couldn’t hold back her tears as she watched the love between the couple, the way they were enjoying their last days together, and the kindness of strangers who didn’t even know about the man’s condition. After the game, the brothers helped the man up the stairs before saying goodbye. See the whole story and the pictures.
