Cubs-ageddon: what short story did I read?

Forget ancient Mayan calendars...are the Cubs going to bring about the End of Days? It's a story I read me remember it!

So I read part of a short story once where a future manager of the Cubs has had a vision that the unprecedented success of his team is going to lead them to the World Series, but that this will somehow bring about the end of the world. It's a common enough urban legend, but I remember a specific story from an anthology of short baseball fiction or something. Anyone have any idea what it might be or who wrote it?

"The Last Pennant Before Armageddon," by W.P. Kinsella, who also wrote "Field of Dreams."
