Former Cubs outfielder Bob Dernier was at Wrigley Field on Wednesday to sing the 7th inning stretch and watch the Cubs beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2.
Before Dernier sang “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” he sat down with Cubs play-by-play announcer Len Kasper for five minutes to talk about his playing career.
Dernier, who played for the Philadelphia Phillies and Cubs, said he could remember all 23 home runs he hit during his 10-year MLB career, but one was special.
I had a walk-off, inside the park, three-run piece in Philly that’s a good memory because it won the game, Dernier said. It turned into the left-field corner, and it kicked by Kevin Mitchell, who was playing left field for San Francisco, and I was able to circle.

The former Cubs outfielder didn’t have the best voice, so he should keep his day job as an ambassador for the Cubs.
