Of course the most important reason the Cubs beat the Dodgers today was notching another win in the standings, and this time against a very good team – arguably the best in baseball. But I can’t say I’m not especially happy it happened after we got one of the single best moments of the year.
Watch as a this (presumably) parent teaches their (presumably) child what WE do with home run balls from the other team at Wrigley Field:
Excellent work. Excellent, excellent work.
Hendricks didn’t get the 7.0-inning shutout, but the tradition lives on.
