HIS CAREER BROADCASTING MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAMES SPANNED MORE THAN A HALF CENTURY. HE CALLED GAMES FOR THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS, OAKLAND A'S AND EVEN THE CROSSTOWN CHICAGO WHITE SOX.
BUT IT WAS THE BROADCAST BOOTH AT WRIGLEY FIELD WHERE HARRY CARAY BECAME A HOUSEHOLD NAME IN SPORTS. HE WAS KNOWN FOR SINGING "TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME" DURING THE SEVENTH INNING STRETCH.

AND FOR EXCLAIMING "HOLY COW!" AND "CUBS WIN!" AFTER EACH CHICAGO VICTORY.

IN 1987 CARAY SUFFERED A STROKE AND HAD TO CUTBACK HIS BROADCASTING DUTIES. DURING HIS REHABILITATION, THE CUBS CALLED ON THE LIKES OF COMEDIAN BILL MURRAY AND OTHERS TO FILL IN AT THE BROADCAST BOOTH.

BUT HARRY CARAY RETURNED TO WRIGLEY FIELD AND THE CUBS. THIS SEASON HE WAS SCHEDULED TO BE JOINED BY HIS GRANDSON CHIP BEHIND THE MIKE. AND EVEN THOUGH ANOTHER CARAY WILL BE CALLING CUBS GAMES, FOR MANY FANS, IT JUST WON'T BE THE SAME AT THE OLD BALLGAME.
