Cubs fans pay to reserve World Series tickets

CHICAGO They want to be the first to reserve the right to buy tickets at face value for a possible World Series game at Wrigley Field.

It's an event that hasn't happened at the Chicago baseball field since 1945. And it's the 99th straight year the star-crossed Cubs have failed to win a World Series title.

But a Chicago-based company called FirstDibz is already selling the rights to purchase tickets from a seller should the World Series happen at Wrigley. The company takes 17 percent in service charges.

If the Cubs don't make the World Series, fans could lose the money.

That isn't stopping fans like Harris Eisenberg. He paid $350 for the right to buy upper deck tickets. He says it's absolutely worth the gamble.
