SHARE Veteran Chicago actor Mike Nussbaum throws first pitch at Wrigley

Beloved veteran Chicago actor Mike Nussbaum, soon to be seen in the return engagement of Goodman Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of “Smokefall,”  (beginning Sept. 20) threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Wrigley Field Tuesday night.

Not sure if he’s a lifelong Cubs fan, but baseball must be to his liking on some level; Nussbaum had a role in the 1989 baseball movie “Field of Dreams.”

In any case, what a cool event for the 90-year-old Nussbaum, born in Chicago just 10 years after Wrigley Field opened!
