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.
