Chicago Is, My Kind of Town:
Here is my story that aired last night on KABC 790 as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
I love Chicago. I loved when our team played there. I love the fans because they support the Cubs a great deal. When I was in the dugout the fans would holler at me and ask where I was going to eat that night, with the answer always being Carmine’s. When I would get to Carmine’s there would always be fans waiting there. I love Chicago almost as much as I love Los Angeles.
I have been asked to sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame a few times at Wrigley Field. Before you sing the song you can say a few words to the fans at Wrigley.
I said, “You are the second greatest fans in all of baseball!”
They didn’t particularly like that….
