In a way.....a Cubs fan is the new Steve Bartman.

The fan has been banned indefinitely from Wrigley Field.

According to the Cubs.....the fan flashed a hand gesture suspected of being

a symbol of white supremacy.

It was captured on TV during a live broadcast of Tuesday night's game.

The fan was seated behind a reporter who's African American.

Cubs president Crane Kenney seemed open to possibly lifting the ban if the fan

can convince the team the symbol was not racist........

Kenney was on 670 The Score out of Chicago.........

So far....the Cubs have not been able to contact the fan.....but they did send him a letter

with notice of the ban.
