Lifelong Cubs fan moved to tears after final out of World Series

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s something you don’t see everyday, maybe just once every 108 years.

You could say 86-year-old Chicago Cubs fan Erv Schreiber was a “glass case of emotion” after the Cubbies finished off the Cleveland Indians in extra innings.

Molly Kruger, the girlfriend of Erv’s grandson, posted the video to Facebook after the Cubs won their first World Series since 1908.

“I got to see ’em win it!” Erv said, fighting back tears. “Yes! Yes!”

Erv’s main room upstairs is covered in Cubs memorabilia, including posters, pictures and old newspaper articles.
