Lifelong Chicago Cubs fan Ronnie "Woo Woo" Wickers said he was kicked out of Wrigley Field on April 19 because he couldn't produce an e-ticket.
Mary Mitchell of the Chicago Sun-Times reported on the incident Wednesday and called Wickers "probably the most famous Cubs fan alive."
"They just lied about everything," the 75-year-old Wickers said when describing the incident.
Wickers said his e-ticket was on his friend's phone, and his friend couldn't pull up the app and was also kicked out of Wrigley Field as a result.
Mitchell noted a Cubs spokesman said Wickers was approached because he attempted to enter the ballpark earlier without a ticket. Cubs vice president of communications and community affairs Julian Green said Wickers was then found in the bleachers and escorted out.
Wickers is something of a local celebrity in Wrigleyville and Chicago as a whole. He was homeless but has always loved the Cubs and is often seen around Wrigley Field dressed in full uniform echoing his famous "Cubs, Woo!" cheers for the defending World Series champions.
He was even granted the opportunity to sing the seventh inning stretch at the ballpark in 2001, but that didn't help him in April when he couldn't produce an e-ticket.
