Whether we anticipated 2016 being the Cubs’ year or not, oh boy it was. After 108 years of no World Series wins, the Cubs clinched the title last year. If you didn’t actually witness the series, you would never believe it was true. It was the ultimate Cinderella story and the ultimate story for Hollywood.
Well, it seems like Hollywood thought so too because it’s really happening, people. The Cubs’ World Series win is being made into a movie. Cue the tears.
The movie will be based off of David Ross’ memoir, Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages, which will be published May 9.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book goes over his final game, when he became the oldest player to homer in a Game 7 of the World Series, helping the Cubs rally from a 3-games-to-1 deficit to overtake the Cleveland Indians and win their first championship since 1908.
What will the title of the film be? Teammate: My Life in Baseball
No word on the casting or release date yet, but you know we’ll let you know. Who’s excited?
