A Chicago Cubs fan has gone on the defensive over becoming a target of ire after footage showed him stealing a walk-off home run ball away from a couple of nearby kids during a recent game.
The Cubs fan in question, known as “Mai Tai Guy,” is a well-known figure at Wrigley Field. His actions while securing Kyle Schwarber’s walk-off home run ball in the 10th inning that propelled the Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night have made him the subject of scorn on social media.
As Schwarber’s long ball cleared the fence in the left-center bleachers, “Mai Tai Guy” reached over the extended arms of two children to secure the home run ball.
