Wrigley Field ushers hope for World Series repeat

For a true Cubs fan, working as an usher might be the ideal job.

Veteran ushers say there is no place they would rather be than Wrigley Field.

FOX 32 talked with three ushers who have been working with the Cubs for decades and are now hoping for a World Series repeat.

Ray Revera is a World War II Navy veteran who started ushering at Wrigley after he retired from the Mortician business.

Others hold down full time jobs while ushering. Tim Kearns is just 35, but he has already been ushering for 19 years.

Kearns is a third grade teacher in Berwyn, training that he says comes in handy at the ballpark.

“You’d be surprised…it's very similar,” he said.

Darrell Windle, 77, used to be a Cubs season ticket holder when he was a banker.

Windle works Section 16 behind home plate. He calls it a community inside the friendly confines.
