On the fence about which of the last three baseball teams left in the playoffs you should root for?

If you like players who are polite, then the Cubs are your team.

Why? Well, here is video that the Chicago Cubs shared of first baseman Anthony Rizzo apologizing to an umpire during Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. The crime? Rizzo thought he had walked when home-plate umpire Angel Hernandez called a strike.

There were no bad feelings:
