I was pretty familiar with both of these stories, but this two-hour
special was still very good and a real eye-opener in parts,
particularly on Steve Bartman.
Basically, it's a story of injustice. It's about two men, one a
ballplayer in Boston and another, a fan in Chicago, and how one
incident unjustly ruined their lives. The ballplayer is Bill Buckner,
who let a ground ball go through his legs which contributed - not cost
- to his team losing the 1986 World Series to the New York Mets. Most
people have seen lots of footage of the amazing comeback of the Mets in
that series and know how the media (mainly) made Buckner the scapegoat.
The bulk of this ESPN story, however, deals with Bartman, the unlucky
fan who did what everyone else does at a game: reached with
outstretched arms for a foul ball. In a nutshell, the Cubs - whose fans
were desperate for the team's first championship since 1908 - lost the
game and went on to miss the World Series. They blamed it on this fan
because the Cubs left fielder, Moises Alou, made a big stink about it
on the field and it would have given the Cubs two outs in the eighth
inning while they were holding a 3-0 lead. If they won, they would have
advanced to the world series. The opponents, the Florida Marlins, went
on to score eight runs in the inning, won the next game, as they won
the World Series. Who did the Cubs fans blame? The shortstop who booted
an easy double-play ball in the inning? The pitchers who gave up all
the runs? Nooooo. They blamed Bartman, a nerdy-looking young man who
just there rooting for his beloved Cubs like everyone else.
The shocking part of the story is the behind-the-scenes footage at the
game, the stuff you didn't see in this 2003 playoff game. The abuse
this young guy took was unbelievable. You have to see it and hear it to
believe it. It's shocking and it's disgraceful. It's a wonder he made
it out alive from Wrigley Field and still lives - although in a pretty
secret world - in the Chicago area.
This is one of those stories that a review here doesn't do the story
justice. You have to sit and watch "Catching Hell" to get the full
impact. It left me speechless.
