Cubs fan Craig Sager released from hospital in time to watch Game 4


Chicago Cubs superfan Craig Sager, who has been in the hospital for three months as he continues his longtime battle with leukemia, was released in time to watch his beloved team play the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS.

Perhaps best of all, obviously outside his discharge from the hospital, was that the Cubs whipped the Dodgers by a score of 10-2 to even the series at two games apiece.

Sager’s son took to Twitter to let the world know that the beloved NBA sideline reporter got to take in the game with his family.

Sager’s daughter Kacy also made note of how the Cubs righted the ship on the same day her dad got released from the hospital.

The longtime and passionate Cubs supporter threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field this past June before singing a rendition of the traditional “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch.

Sager was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014. While there have been encouraging developments along the way, there have been some serious setbacks as well. It’s safe to say the entire sports world — who have universally rallied around Sager — is pulling for him and are overjoyed by news of his release.
