A seven-year-old Cubs fan named Johnny Wallach was with his father and the kid was accidentally elbowed (probably drunk fan) and knocked out for thirty seconds during Game 1 of the World Series in Cleveland.
The kid was laid out on the ground and fans were actually booing them for the disturbance. I guess only in Cleveland.
Initially, the Cleveland Indians offered him some tickets to a regular season for compensation for being laid out during the game. However, the Indians decided to step up their game and paid for him and his father to Friday's game at Wrigley Field.
So the story has a happy ending as Johnny will get to see his Chicago heroes play at World Series game at iconic Wrigley Field.
