Pope Francis gets Cubs hat, baseball from Chicago archbishop

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis now has a blue Chicago Cubs hat to go with his traditional white skull cap.

Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich presented Francis with the hat and what looks like a signed baseball at the Vatican on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the Cubs won their first World Series since 1908.

Cupich shared a photo of Francis holding the items on Twitter.

Cupich is set to be made a cardinal by Francis later this week.
