WUSN Take Me Out to the Ballgame
There are few honors higher in a market than being asked to throw out the first pitch or sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at your local major league baseball park. Lisa and Ray, US 99.5, Chicago were invited to Wrigley Field to help with the seventh inning stretch for a recent Cubs game. “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” was something the iconic Harry Caray made fun when he did play-by-play for the Cubs. Nervous to do a great job in front of thousands of fans and a TV audience, Lisa and Ray decided to get tips from Harry’s widow, Dutchie. There are options for a show when something like this happens: just talk about it or find something to do with it that is unique and has a “first person” quality. Talking with Dutchie accomplishes the latter and makes the break and its content more memorable.
