One-Hundred-Year-Old Die-Hard Cubs Fan Dies

                                ... Proud Iroquois County farmer ...

A 100-year-old Cubs fan who helped the team celebrate its own centennial anniversary has died -- less than three weeks after his appearance on the grass at Wrigley Field. Louis Reinhart of Loda in central Illinois was supposed to be part of opening day ceremonies but got to the ball park too late because of traffic. The team invited the retired farmer back to deliver the game ball and pose on the field with members of the team before the June 8th game with Miami. His funeral is today in Loda.
