There’s likely no bigger — or older — fan of the Cubs in these parts than Ruth Klitzing of Sadorus, whose 100th birthday coincided with the team’s breakthrough in 2016.
I’m happy to report she’s still going strong — she turns 103 on Oct. 15 — and still keeping track of her favorite team.
What went wrong this year?
“Rizzo and Bryant were injured,” she said.
Will she cheer on the Cardinals instead?
“Nope,” she said, laughing.
On Oct. 15, family and friends are throwing a cake-and-ice-cream party for Klitzing at Arbor Rose in Tolono.
