HARRY CARAY RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Orioles pitcher gives hilarious Harry Caray impersonation at Wrigley

When you think if Chicago baseball and Wrigley Field, you think of Harry Caray, probably about 4 beers deep, leading the daytime crowd in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” as the crowd joins in.  And if you watched on TV, you were always treated to his color commentary some funny quips, mispronunciations, and random (sometimes accurate) facts occasionally about what he had for dinner...

WATCH: T.J. McFarland does his Harry Caray impression

For some reason (and, let’s be honest…it’s probably Will Ferrell’s fault), Major League Baseball players love to imitate Harry Caray. Seriously, it’s as if anyone with oversized black glasses thinks they have an open invitation to try and sound like the legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster.  And, mostly, they come across as hackneyed copies of the impersonation the “Anchorman”...

Minor league GM offers to get in-game prostate exam

We’re pretty sure Harry Caray never did it quite like this. General manager Andy Milovich of the Class-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans has offered to receive a prostate exam while singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” for an upcoming game. Perhaps we need to explain this a little more in detail. Well, not too much detail. We’re talking context-type details. Milovich made the deal...

Harry Caray’s drinking diary is legendary

There were a lot of things that the late Harry Caray was known for during his career – his glasses, his hair, his tone of voice, and his constant misinterpretations of various names to name a few. But a diary that was inherited after Caray passed adds another wrinkle to his legend – Caray was a habitual drinker, almost to the point of disbelief. Neil Steinberg of the Chicago...

Harry Caray went out drinking 288 consecutive days in 1972

In perhaps the least surprising news of the night, it’s been confirmed that legendary broadcaster Harry Caray was also a legendary drinker. That’s a pretty indisputable fact according to Caray’s expense diary from 1972 that Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg recently got his hands on. The diary, which Caray kept while he was a broadcaster for the Chicago White Sox,...

Video: Harry Caray Fired From Cardinals

This week in the Post-Dispatch, Media Reporter Dan Caesar profiled longtime KMOX and KSDK sportscaster Ron Jacober as he draws near retirement. I’d encourage you to read the whole thing if you’re a nerd like me and enjoy the history of sportscasting in St. Louis. One of the more interesting tidbits to come out the piece was about Harry Caray. He was fired from the Cardinals broadcast...

Chicago Cubs jacket simultaneously celebrates team’s success, futility (photo)

Some random fellow spotted at some random McDonald’s somewhere in Indiana may have a jacket that best celebrates the Chicago Cubs organization’s long-ago success and century-lasting futility. Awesome. This is the varsity jacket that Harry Caray is wearing in Heaven. When he ever catches a chill. The varsity jacket is entirely accurate: The Cubs are […] The post Chicago Cubs...

HEY!

Elliot Johnson nails Harry Caray impression

The Atlanta Braves are poised to win their first National League East division title in 9 years (up 13 games in the standings) and recently acquired utility infielder Elliot Johnson off waivers from the Kansas City Royals to add depth.  While Johnson may not make much of a difference on the diamond, as a career .212 hitter with just 12 HR in 650+ AB, he may be a great fit in the...

Chicago Cubs to tweak seventh inning stretch

The Chicago Cubs are modifying their long-time tradition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch. The song, sang during the break by legendary Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray until his death in 1998, has been sang by a revolving door of celebrities in recent years. The Cubs will still honor the memory of Caray by keeping the song in play, but instead...

Is a Harry Caray hologram next?

If Dre and Snoop can bring Tupac back from the dead using holograms, then why can't Harry Caray still sing 'Take Me Out To The Ballgame' at Wrigley Field?
