Then Meza helped tell the world about Lee’s prediction and the story went viral, so it led to a visit to the Windy City and an earlier vacation than planned, he said. Lee’s former classmate, Marcos Meza, offered KTLA sister station WGN-TV in Chicago final month with video proof that the yearbook picture and its message are actual.

‘My attitude was, ‘You should play the games,’ he told The Huffington Post. Yet regardless of understanding if the Cubs would seal the deal a long dustin camp interview time earlier, Michael who is now a 41-year-old software engineer living within the suburbs of Chicago, decided to keep a low profile.
