Minor League Team Holding 'Steve Bartman' Night

They just won't let it go:

Wednesday the Miami-affiliated Grasshoppers are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Marlins' 2003 World Championship season. Jack McKeon, that squad's cigar chomping skipper, will be on hand to throw out the first pitch and 50 bobbleheads in his likeness will be given away as well. But here's where things get a little strange -- the Grasshoppers are also staging a tribute to Steve Bartman, the Cubs fan who inadvertently gave the Marlins a new lease on life when he interfered with a foul ball during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS.

Grasshoppers director of production Shawn Russell writes that a staff member will dress in Bartman's trademark glasses, hat and headphones get-up and "ruin" or "interfere" with many of the evening's on-field promotions.
