A few weeks ago I walked down the street and went on the Wrigley Field Ballpark Tour.
That afternoon the Cubs’ were holding tryouts for the organization’s Seventh Inning Stretch competition.
All the participants were lined up in front of the Cubs’ dugout waiting their turn to step up to the microphone and belt out a memorable rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
Yesterday afternoon Gonzalo Palacios, a Spanish-language pastor from Elmwood Park, Ill., won the competition.
I thought he nailed it, vocally and emotionally.
It’s always nice to see good things happen to people who love life, and without question, Gonzo is a lover, both of life and Cubs baseball. Good for him.
Here’s my original post of the ballpark tour, the pics are below.
If you have the chance to take the tour, GO.
