Through Technology, Harry Caray Comes Back to Celebrate Cubs World Series Victory
If you believe what baseball does best is nostalgia, you just might tear up at this great example of this a Budweiser commercial that ran after the Cubs stunning Game 7 victory in Cleveland to win the 2016 World Series.
Taking nothing away from Harry Caray, but forgotten in all this hoopla is Jack Brickhouse, who was the voice of Cubs games from the 1940's into the 1980's. He saw a lot of losses in that time including a monumental collapse in 1969.
Caray built his Hall of Fame career in St. Louis, after a shirt stint in Kalamazoo at WKZO in the early 1940's, He called St. Louis Cardinals (and Browns) games for a quarter of a century. After a fall out with Anheuser-Busch, which owned the ballclub, management in the late 1960's, he moved to Oakland for a year and the called Chicago White Sox games for over a decade. (And was great!) When the Cubs were sold to Tribune Company in 1981, they brought Caray in. Apparently all was forgiven as a new generation of Cub fans adopted Caray as a "Cub Fan, and Bud Man"..
