“Let’s play two!”
Pearl Jam was already set to rock Wrigley Field on Friday night when the historic ballpark enjoyed a surprise visit from one of the greatest to ever wear the Cubbie Blue.
The one and only Ernie Banks – better known as “Mr. Cub” – came on stage right before big-time Chicago fan Eddie Vedder began singing “All The Way.”
It is a Cubs tribute song. Word is that Vedder only wrote it after Banks himself asked him to write a song about the team. How cool is that?
But wait, there’s more: That glove Banks is sporting is no everyday mitt. Banks told the crowd that it had belonged to a five-year old Vedder and that he would be taking it home with him.
We just can’t help but ask again: How cool is that?
Even acclaimed director Judd Apatow was impressed. Honestly, who wouldn’t be?
