Fan favorite TNT broadcaster Craig Sager has been battling intense treatment for Leukemia as he has been in and out hospitals with chemotherapy sessions.

Sager is a diehard Cubs fan and threw out the first pitch and sang "Take me out to the ballgame" back in the beginning of June.

Every year since 1981, Sager has placed $1000 on the Cubs to win the World Series, and now he finally won after 35 straight losing bets.



"It's fitting the Cubs get their mojo back the same night my dad checks out from the hospital," Sager's daughter said.
