Moises Alou failed to come up with the foul ball, which ended up in the stands with Steve Bartman, shown with his arms out wearing headphones and a Cubs hat. Alou said immediately after the game he would have made the play if he hadn't been interfered with. "I timed it perfectly, I jumped perfectly. I'm almost 100 percent that I had a clean shot to catch the ball. All of a sudden, there's a hand on my glove."
