Cubs Graciously Host Ruth Kin

Posted in Baseball at 3:59 pm by

That’s Babe Ruth’s daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens, re-enacting her dad’s “Called Shot” at today’s Brewers/Cubs game.

Hopefully, the Yankees will take a tip from this promotional stunt and invite Luis Gonzalez to wave to the crowd before a game against the A’s later in the year.

Bobby Howry, Scott Eyre and Scott Williamson combined for 3 scoreless innings in relief of Greg Maddux (6 IP, 2 ER, 6 K’s), with the Cubs winning, 6-2.  Ronny Cedeno hit a 2 run HR off Milwaukee’s Dave Bush in the 5th ; Jacque Jones added a solo shot to left center off Justin Lehr in the 8th.

    Earlier today, someone responded to my post about the rumored Cubs sale with a list of things that would piss any Cub fan off. None of that quite hit me like the Tribco setting aside a special day to celebrate a Cub defeat in the World Fucking Series.

    Hats off to the Trib Co. for this one. For everything I’ve ever said about them here, they have paid me back a hundred times. I’m so naive, I thought Jimmy Buffett Day was the worst they could do to me.

    unless someone in the Tribune Company really hates Barry Bonds (in which case, get in line) this was a baffling move. Maybe even in that case.

    No disrespect intended to Mrs. Ruth-Stevens, who seemed like a pleasant enough old lady. But they might as well invite Bartman to sing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” tomorrow.

    It’s something the Yankees or Red Sox (post-Series win) should do. It’s not like the Cubs have so many Series wins we can laugh a few off.
