Heartbreaking, but look how many others were trying to catch it too! On Oct. 14, 2003, 8th inning of Game 6 of the NL Championship Series, Steve Bartman, a devoted Chicago Cubs fan, reached for a foul ball getting in the way of Cubs LF Moises Alou, making the catch. The Cubs led Florida Marlins 3-2 in the series, and 3-0 in the game. 5 outs from their first World Series since 1945. Afterward, of course, everything went to shit. Bartman had to be escorted from Wrigley. He's never been back.
