Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Sam Kraft

Sam began writing for VFTB in December of 2016, shortly after the Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years. He currently resides in Chicago’s Noble Square neighborhood, but fondly recalls living in Wrigley Field’s shadow for several years during his early 20s. His bleacher bum bucket hat from the 80s is a mainstay during baseball season, despite being told it looks “ridiculous” on multiple occasions each year.
