GREENDWOOD, IN (WTHR) A North Carolina man drove back home to Indiana to keep a decades-old promise to his father Wednesday.

Wayne Williams drove in for the Game 7 of the World Series.

“The gate was open,” he says as he drives in.

He’s not at the ballpark. He’s watching it with his dad, Williams set up camp in the military section of Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery.

His dad died at age 53 in 1980. A Navy veteran and a loyal Cubs fan.

“I talked it out with my boys forever. I let them know that I told my dad – we had a pact. When the Cubs – not if, when – the Cubs got into the World Series, we would make sure we listen to the games together,” Williams said.

Look, dad, here’s your son, keeping his part of the bargain.
