"Press conference in nineteen as force we anticipate that's going to be coming your way any minute now from the rose garden of the White House it was a call for four o'clock as it is every day but it's a moving target as we like to say Kevin Powell has been reporting on the fact that the the cubs and cubs fans have lost one of their favorites Jim Frye one of the and and a man whose name was mispronounced for years and years and years and years in this town but was a guy as you're pointing out brought back the cubs to an actual reasonably responsible baseball operations yes definitely well before my time but if you ever talk to a cubs fan they always say if you if they look back on their fandom though always bring up the nineteen eighty four season which ended in in heartbreak but it did bring them back you know they they have a winning record going into that season since nineteen seventy two so is a real turnaround for the for that era of cubs baseball but yeah Jim Frye was eighty eight passed away on Sunday yes I know it's before ten but I will say this one of the things that I think cubs fans will remember is at the end of that season it changed everything because the cubs whether you know Ryne Sandberg and Rick Sutcliffe Bobby you're near at John Dunstan they walked around the stadium during the last home game before the playoffs and with the no thank thank the crowd and the crowd in the stadium was full and I would like to say that just a few few years two years earlier you wouldn't you couldn't find a person in that stadium in September to save your life to save your life you couldn't fight but and it's in the you know to me that is one of the that's one of the great that accomplishments I think in terms of bringing that organization around and I think that changes the destiny in the direction of the neighborhood yeah well you know if if you ask of vans as well though a lot of them will mention their favorite players are from that era of cubs baseball so you hear that and there was a speaking of Wrigley Field I don't know if you heard this my last report but they're turning the Wrigleyville campus into a culvert nineteen relief hub where they're going to be temporary temporarily satellite food packing and distribution center at Wrigley Field are gonna be utilizing the space on the concourses are also be providing rooms at the hotel Zachary which is right across the street from Wrigley Field for health care workers at duck lake views advocate Medical Center as well so yeah that's right down the block that's a perfect idea yeah yeah and that's it it's interesting that the rickets family is kind on both sides of this of this issue you know Tom Ricketts obviously with the cubs are trying to do all the right stuff for the city of Chicago his brother is the governor of the state in Nebraska and we don't want the last holdouts and the social distancing all arrested you know stay in place kind of kind of orders you've got state wide orders and so there's that no the the politics of this very interesting but they have been an incredibly I would say this I mean I'm I'm I'm would not I I can't K. as it as a as a born cubs fan I can't lie about this I don't think that they get enough credit for what they did I don't think that the route that to time markets and markets and all the rest of the that said the family was involved in this it is really easy to you know want to be haters about of what they did for Wrigleyville and what they did for the for the team and for the fans I mean listen I know I gets pretty obvious right they won a World Series but it's the other pieces of it the fan experience is totally different the the experience around Wrigley Field and the neighborhood and what they've done just in terms of stabilizing neighborhood and I know there's always neighbors out there that are complaining that Wrigley Field is in my backyard but they they can only complain about that if there are like a hundred twenty years old Bob Sirott morning manna WGN joins us right now I wanna get your thoughts on the passing Jim fry and I've missed the introduction you referred to me as a hundred twenty years old thank you no no that was no no no no that was it they don't if you're a complainer and reveals your hundred twenty years old not only a hundred and ten so well right so let's here's the thing about Jim fry what I remember most about him is when he was up in the in the radio booth in the WGN radio booth he was really funny funny guy and I remember and I'm trying to recall the circumstances I don't know because they were my way into that but so many times but I was up there one time and you know they put me on the air for for some reason and I said something and you know we've been given gave me a look like Hey if you do know something about baseball it and you know I mean he was just a very will be very savvy guy and you know he despite his age he always looked older than he was you know you can expect some of these witnesses Ms to come out of them but they always get the guy was really really a smart it guy that's that's that's what I remember about it very great sense of humor I was just remembering the moment where at the end of the eighty four season comes came out they walk around the stadium and we're not seeing that a Chicago baseball stadium and while you know seventy years of apple all right was it it was a very special moment was I think that was the beginning of the turn around and you know where the cubs decided that they really had to be a winning franchise as opposed to the lovable losers yeah eighty four and you know we're talking about Glenn Becker the other day and night great memory of eighty four is number eight clinched in Pittsburgh they're on the road and I was working for channel two at the time so we did a live shot I was inside the empty Wrigley Field watching the game on channel nine from Pittsburgh with Glenn Becker in Randy Hundley and when the game ended well we we did a live shot from the ballpark with the reaction of of the gland and Randy and do things and whether that crystal ball Packard ever the practical joker in the middle of the live chat dumps a bucket of water in my head and then the other thing I remember is when we signed up if you recall the story there are thousands of people around the ballpark at the bard should rebuild that night celebrating and so I remember watching Hundley walk up to the top step of the grandstand and look out at the crowd celebrating all around the empty Wrigley Field and you could just you could just read his face it was so bitter sweet the caption was what could have been and you know that's what he was thinking I'll always remember that yeah how man it's a dagger in the
