2/24 A toast to Harry
You can toast Harry Caray on March 1 as part of the 14th annual worldwide toast to the legendary broadcaster. Harry would’ve been 98 this year. His birthday will be celebrated around the world, with the headquarters at Harry Caray’s Tavern at Navy Pier. Hall of Famer Ernie Banks and Harry’s wife Dutchie will lead the toast at 5:45 p.m. CT March 1. This year should mark the 5 millionth toaster. The winner will be randomly selected after the toast at Harry Caray’s at Navy Pier and get the chance to throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field plus a 30-minute pitching lesson from Kerry Wood.
Fans can join in the toast to the late broadcaster by visiting the official Toast Facebook page (facebook.com/ToastToHarry) for a list of bars in all 50 states and countries around the world.
