Two Cedar Valley Cubs Fans Caught Home Runs
A group of Cedar Valley friends went to Tuesday’s Chicago Cubs game, and two of them went home with home run balls.
Tuesday night, a couple of Waterloo Columbus High School students went to Wrigley Field and were treated to a five homerun game. Two of those five homeruns went to left center field where Joe Duggan and Charlie Dugan were sitting. A couple seats and one letter in their last name apart and they both go home with home run balls.
Cubs rookie, Ian Happ, hit the first home run to Joe and Charlie caught his an inning later. Charlie caught his off John Lester for his first career home run. Lester even signed the ball. “To Charlie Nice Catch! 1st homer!” After Lester’s home run, the bullpen went ballistic!
