No matter how many times his teammates said it, Kyle Schwarber had a hard time believing it. Through all the hours of rehab, all the months spent away from the field, the rest of the Chicago Cubs kept telling him he would be back for the World Series.
I’ve always been a baseball fan, and I’ve had three favorite teams in my lifetime: the Boston Red Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Seattle Mariners. Since none of my favorite teams is in the World Series, I’m able to enjoy the pure spectacle.
But Kyle Schwarber’s story is one that should please everybody, regardless of where one’s baseball heart lies.
