A Betsy Ross Elementary School student was recently chosen as a Fannie May Cubs Kid, and celebrated “the best day of [his] life” by spending a day in the dugout at Wrigley Field where he met the players and coaches. 

Kaleb, whose last name was not provided, wrote an essay articulating his love for the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field, Fannie May, and much more. In his essay, he said he inherited his love for the Cubs from his parents, who taught him everything he knows about the team. 

He said he likes the Cubs because they play well, always seem to be having fun, and he likes singing the songs that go along with the baseball games, including the “National Anthem,” “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and, of course, “Go Cubs Go.” 

“I don’t have a favorite player because I love them all,” Kaleb wrote. 

He added: “I have been to three Cubs games in my life and they won every time. I must be the good luck charm.”
