Panel discussion on favorite moment at Wrigley Field
Bruce Levine, Len Kasper and Elise Menaker joined host Cole Wright on Cubs 360 Daily, presented by Miller Lite, to discuss their favorite moment at Wrigley Field.
An article on MLB.com listed every the best moment at each ballpark. MLB.com listed the best moment at Wrigley Field was Babe Ruth’s “called shot” home run in the 1932 World Series. Our panel had their own moment they think of as their favorite.
Menaker mentioned a more recent memory is Game 5 of the 2016 World Series.
“If a whole inning could be a moment, I would do that,” Menaker said. “Bottom of the 4th, it started with Kris Bryant. That home run he hit, the Cubs were down 1-0. He ties the game with the home run and I remember Joe Buck saying ‘Wrigley Field is shaking.'”
Kasper has a lot of memorable moments at Wrigley Field; however, Kasper agrees it is Babe Ruth’s “called shot” home run. Levine also chose a recent moment at Wrigley Field.
“I have to go with the 2016 clincher of a pennant,” Levine said. “It was the first time it was done since 1945. It’s the first time actually that a pennant is clinched for the Cubs at home in Wrigley Field since 1932. Just savoring the moment and saying ‘Yes, the Cubs are going to the World Series.'”
So many moments have been on display at Wrigley Field. What do you think is the best moment at Wrigley Field?
