Mark your calendars and get your popcorn ready because the players who ended the Chicago Cubs’ 108-year World Series title-less drought are coming together to tell you how it all happened:
One of the greatest Game 7's in sports history…
— CSN Chicago (@CSNChicago) March 14, 2017
This Comcast Sports Net Chicago original feature re-lives the greatest Game 7 in baseball history (and one of the greatest Game 7 winner-take-all games in the history of American sports) with behind-the-scenes stories and perspectives from the people who made it happen.
The hour-long feature will air on March 27 at 9:30 p.m., and will be narrated by country music star and die-hard Cubs fan Brett Eldridge. It will be filled with new anecdotes and stories from stars on the field such as World Series MVP Ben Zobrist, National League MVP Kris Bryant, the ever-inspirational Anthony Rizzo, noted motivational speaker Jason Heyward, the brain-trust who made it happen including president Theo Epstein, general manager Jed Hoyer, and owner Tom Ricketts.
It’s a who’s who of the most important people who played a role in the iconic and unforgettable game.
Even World Series villain Rajai Davis is listed among the players who will chime in with a perspective from the Cleveland Indians side of things on Game 7. Because, as you’ll recall, Cleveland blew a 3-1 lead in the World Series.
Is it too early to set my DVR?
