Cubs' organist celebrates 30 years at Wrigley Field

-
Gary Pressy has been the Chicago Cubs organist at Wrigley Field full time since 1986.
 
That’s 30 years, 2,360 games and he’s never missed a single one.
 
Name a Cubs player who has stepped into the batter’s box at Wrigley Field or a homer that has crashed out into the bleachers over the last 30 years, and there’s a pretty good chance that Gary Pressy provided the soundtrack for the moment.
 
This life-long Cubs fan has played his fare share of seventh inning stretches – and seen his fare share of Cubs history but for him, the game remains the constant.

And while this may be game 2,360 – it’s a special one.
 
See that beautiful woman throwing out the first pitch?
 
That’s Virginia – Gary’s mother.
 
With many stadiums around the country converting to canned music, Gary is becoming a bit of a dying breed.
 
But it’s hard to imagine this place without him.
 
Because he’s as much a part of Wrigley as anything else.
