Chicago Cubs’ fans write names of others who passed away, were not able to see 2016 World Series win
The Chicago Cubs won its first World Series Championship since 1908 Wednesday night and many celebrated (no, really, we mean a lot) but for some it was a bitter sweet moment.
After the game fans flocked to the brick right field wall of Wrigley Field, reports Deadspin, to write in chalk the names of the fans who passed away and were never able to see their team win it all.

One fan even watched the game with his late father, reports WTHR, and they celebrated the win together.
