Chicago Cubs fans from around the Midwest came to Westside High School Friday to see the Cubs' first World Series trophy in over 100 years.
A line of people sprawled out the doors and on to the Warrior's football field in anticipation of seeing the treasured trophy.
One fan, Stephanie Ramirez, came up from Kansas to share in this piece of Chicago's history. "This is incredible. I grew up in Chicago, my dad and I used to walk to Cubs games from my house. So, I was a northside girl. So, I've waited 44 years."
Another fan from Kansas, Jessica Snyder, was one of the first people in line Friday afternoon to make sure she got her picture taken with the trophy. "We've waited forever. We actually went to chicago for the world Series. We were at Wrigleyville hanging out for game 4. We are ready to see that trophy."
Not only were fans on hand to get their picture taken with the famed trophy, but Governor Pete Ricketts was even on hand to greet fans and join in the celebration.
The trophy made stops in Lincoln and Gretna before stopping in Omaha for the afternoon.
