A woman filed an 'emergency petition' to get Cubs tickets from her estranged husband


A Cook County, Illinois, woman filed an emergency petition to get tickets from her estranged husband to see the Cubs play in the world series in Chicago, the Washington Post reports through the Associate Press.

Nancy Riddle is trying to get the tickets to see Game 4 of the series, played against the Cleveland Indians.

According to reports, the judge in the case ruled that Riddle's husband,  John Riddle, can keep the tickets for himself and the couple's 12-year-old son, but should "buy" Nancy her own ticket...which could cost $3,000.

The story broke when an AP reporter found the court case. 

It's been decades since the Cubs made it to the World Series, so it's no surprise that people are excited to see them play. 

The Washington Post and the AP contributed to this report.
