The Chicago Cubs won the World Series in dramatic fashion early Thursday morning, ending a 108-year drought after surmounting a 3-1 series deficit and clinching a title in extra innings.

And all of Philly sports Twitter was fixated on former Phillies player Michael Martinez.

Martinez — aka Mini Mart — spent a rather forgettable three seasons with the Phillies from 2011-2013, batting under .200 and swatting just five home runs during his tenure with the team. But with his connection to the Phillies, and his pending at-bat in a crucial moment, local fans were reveling in Martinez's date with destiny.

Martinez grounded out to Kris Bryant to end the game and the series.

And more jokes ensued.

Sorry, Mini Mart.
