Pictures of Wrigley Field Tour

By bullpenbrian at 09.02.2008 5 comments.

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.

The tour begins underneath the famous red marquee

Here's the view from the Comcast Sports Net suite

    Looks like it was a beautiful day at the ballpark. I would love to go myself. The only addition to the tour I would like to see would be from inside the scoreboard.

    That picture of the Gare Bear reminds me of the days when he played with the yankees!?

    Or maybe it was when he was hitting against Kent Tekulve?

    Either way he looks like he is enjoying the view.

    I never thought that I would see you out of uniform, how could you stoop so low as to give up your Reds hat for a cubby!!!!

    Looks like you had a great time and I am sure that your heart pumps RED’s blood.

    Here is my pick early for the pool:

    Jets 35 Tampa Bay 28

    Brett Favre MVP for life.
