MLB Network to show Harry documentary. #Cubs
Cubs legendary broadcaster Harry Caray will be the featured subject in “Holy Cow! The Story of Harry Caray,” the latest edition of MLB Network Presents, to premier Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. CT. Narrated by award-winning actor and die-hard Cubs fan William Petersen, the one-hour program on MLB Network documents Caray’s rise to becoming one of baseball’s most iconic voices and how his legacy still resonates throughout the game.
The episode covers a rare look into Caray’s childhood and relationship with his family, including interviews with Atlanta Braves broadcaster and Harry’s grandson, Chip Caray, and Harry’s widow, Dutchie.
Broadcasters Joe Buck, Bob Costas, Pat Hughes, Tim McCarver, Steve Stone and Rick Sutcliffe describe Caray’s unique style that endeared him to generations of fans. Former Cubs president John McDonough and Chicago columnist Rick Kogan detail Caray’s special bond with Chicago, where Caray called White Sox games for 11 seasons and Cubs games for 16 seasons. Longtime comedians and Chicago natives Tom Dreesen and Jeff Garlin highlight Caray’s colorful personality.
*On Friday on MLB Network, fans can watch Kris Bryant and Jake Arrieta receive their BBWAA awards, which were presented in New York last Saturday. Check your local listings for the time.
