Jon Lester’s walk-out song, “Gonna Know We Were Here,” is dripping with symbolism reflecting his time in Chicago and what he was able to accomplish in a Cubs uniform.

Lester was a major force in changing the culture around the club, signing a free-agent pact with a team coming off a last place finish and helping push the Cubs to the NLCS and — eventually — that elusive World Series championship.

Lester will return to Wrigley Field May 17 with his new team, the Washington Nationals.
