Grandson trying to get 82-year old Cubs fan to World Series

Posted: Updated:

Rosie Youngblut has been going to Cubs game since she was a young girl.

"One of the best feelings is going into church and then Wrigley Field is right there behind that," she says.

She got it from her older sister Janette, the biggest Cubs fan in the family. Sadly, she passed away last year. One of Rosie's favorite memories with her was celebrating her birthday at Wrigley Field.

She says, "A whole group came up and sang happy birthday to her and then everyone came and took our pictures because they thought we were celebrities or something."

And that love for the game has been passed down to Rosie's 11 kids, who have passed it on to their kids. Her grandson Alan took her to a few playoff games this year, including Saturday's clincher.

Alan says, "It means more to her than it does to me, but being there with her...that's what really counts."

A memory for the whole family that will last a lifetime.

World Series tickets are VERY expensive, so Alan actually started a GoFundMe page titled "Get Grandma Youngblut to the World Series." It has raised more than $500 dollars at this time.
