Tom Ricketts and Cubs organization continue to show why they're one of the best organizations in all of sports. 


First, they made amends with infamous scapegoat Steve Bartman, offering him a personalized 2016 World Series ring and welcoming him back to the Cubs community. 


On a more somber note, the Cubs reached out to the parents of diehard fan, Foster Atwood, who had passed away earlier this month. 

Simply put, this is a classy move by Ricketts. 


The Cubs Executive Chairman, who can frequently be seen walking around the confines of Wrigley Field interacting with fans, offered a heartfelt gesture in a time of grief for the Atwood family.


The letter is a reminder of touching moments that baseball can bring before us. Connected by a passion for the Cubs, Ricketts was able to share his condolences with a family that had lost a loved one. 


Ricketts' note comes on perhaps the most hectic day of the year in the MLB. While trade rumors swirled all morning and multiple All-Stars were sent to contenders, Ricketts letter slowed things down and put baseball's connections into perspective.


Sometimes it's more than just a game.
