Lauren Klein and C.J. Edwards

If you watched the Cubs game Wednesday night you would've seen Cubs TV announcer Len Kasper introducing Peru’s Lauren Klein to the world.  The 13-year-old was picked from 1,500 video nominations on Twitter to walk onto Wrigley Field and be part of the ring presentation. Klein also got complimentary transportation, accommodations, a jersey hat and ball along with two tickets to the game against the Dodgers and Cubs gift cash to spend at Wrigley Field. 

She was the youngest of the 20 “ring bearers.”  The oldest was 90-year-old Jimmy Thurman of Kewanee.
