CHICAGO — Southwest Virginia native Justin Grimm is now apart of baseball history.
Last night Grimm and his Chicago Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings to win the World Series for the first time in 108 years.
The Virginia High graduate and relief pitcher for the Cubs saw action in 6 playoffs games this season and pitched in 3 games of the World Series.
The right-hander went 4 1/3rd innings for a 12.46 era in the post season.
Grimm, who became the 5th player from our area to win a World Series ring said “the cubs will hold a parade in the morning.”
