Meet The 7-Year-Old Whose Favorite Team, Literally, Became a Part of Him

Beckham Zobrist has a cool way of showing he’s a Cubs fan…

In 2012, Beckham was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare form of cancer, in his right eye.

Unfortunately, the only way doctors were able to remove it and keep it from spreading to his brain was to remove the eye.

But after getting bullied by kids who learned about his prosthetic,  Beckham asked his parents for a new eye for Christmas. When they explained to him that that wish couldn’t be granted, Beckham’s parents gave the baseball lover his next request: A prosthetic eye custom made with the logo of his favorite team, the Chicago Cubs.

This is a wonderful story and another reminder that sports matter. Check out Beckham’s E:60 segment below.
