As much as the boys probably didn’t want to see the administrator, he didn’t want to see his students either.
"I saw him and I was kind of ducking down," Versluis told the Chicago Sun Times. "I didn't want him to see me either. I'm here with my son, Aiden, who's in the fifth grade and I called out sick for the day."
Versluis is part of a group of guys who share season tickets. This year he was the lucky one to get the opening day game. He said that while school and learning are important, so are some experiences that you can’t pass up.
"Attendance is important. But, we also learn from these experiences in life. Who's giving up opening day? Come on," Versluis told WQAD.
The boys are apparently good students, too. WQAD said they were given the tickets by their parents for straight A's.
Tucker and Gunner did meet up with Versluis and snapped a photo of the trio of skippers.
The Cubs fell to the Pirates 8-5.
