7/25 Hey, hey

It’s Jack Brickhouse day at Wrigley Field on Friday. The first 10,000 fans at Friday’s Cubs vs. Cardinals game will receive a Jack Brickhouse Bobblehead with an audio chip of Brickhouse calling Ernie Banks 500th home run, presented by Advocate Health Care. Pat Brickhouse, Jack’s widow, will toss a ceremonial first pitch and sing the seventh inning stretch. Jack Brickhouse broadcast Cubs games on WGN-TV from 1948-81, and received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983. He died in August 1998.
