Michael Bolling, 23, is a Chicago Cubs fan from Chicago. His love for baseball stems from his mother, who is from the Dominican Republic and got Michael to start playing baseball at the age of four. He played Division II baseball at Lewis University while earning a degree in Multimedia Journalism, and signed a professional contract to play for the Frontier League's Schaumburg Boomers. With his playing days behind him, Michael now works as a baseball video evaluator for NCSA Sports. He lives only six blocks from Wrigley Field, and still gets teary-eyed when he thinks back to what might have been in 2003.

Serena Sanchez, 21, is a Los Angeles Dodgers fan from Ontario, Calif. Her friends and family call her "Fedex," and she loves her fast food job delivering burgers. She and her dad are long-time Dodgers season-ticket holders, and according to Serena, "all of Chavez Ravine knows me." Luckily, her manager often lets her leave work early so she can get to Dodger Stadium for the first pitch. In addition to her bedroom, which she has turned into a "Dodgers shrine," Serena has also taken over a separate closet in her parents' house just to house all her blue and white outfits. Serena has been dancing for her entire life, and especially loves hip-hop dance
