This intrepid Cubs fan is ensuring that no spectators interfere with the field of play

Batman. Superman. Wonder Woman. The guy who keeps the sandwich shop open late at night on Fridays. They are all heroes making personal sacrifices for the greater good ... which is exactly what this Cubs fan was doing. During his team's series-clinching 5-0 victory over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday, this fan made sure there would be no incidents of the type that popped up the last time the Cubs hosted an NLCS Game 6 -- which you might know better as "Steve Bartman Day." 

When Josh Reddick hit a popup down the first-base line in the fifth inning, this legendary rooter spread his arms out as if to say, "Don't worry, guys. You worry about the play on the field. I'll handle the rest." Sure enough, Javier Baez called off Anthony Rizzo and caught the ball for an easy out. 

Thanks in part to this fan's help, the Cubs will take on the Indians in the World Series. Tune in to watch Game 1 on Tuesday at 8 p.m. on FOX.
