MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – With the Chicago Cubs suffering from a 108-year championship drought and the Cleveland Indians without a title since 1948, Game 7 of the 2016 World Series is special for fans of both clubs across a number of generations.

That sentiment is best represented by Paul Robinson and Mary Doile, just two of the folks who came together Wednesday night at Myrtle Beach’s Eagle Crest Retirement Home to watch an historic World Series come to a close.

Both in their 90s, Doile’s allegiance has been with Chicago, while Robinson has counted himself as a member of Cleveland’s tribe for decades.

They both sat with WMBF News reporter Eric Traphagen throughout the game.
