Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder discussed breaking into Wrigley Field when the Cubs won the World Series on the Artist and the Athlete. The story took place during the NLCS.
“Theo [Epstein] and I, the night was still young at around 3:30 and to go to bed would seem like a waste of that fine whiskey and this particular elevated feeling that we had for so many reasons. But we ended up back at the ballpark, me and Theo and I believe a guy named Scott Harris, and we took some swings in the cage and that felt pretty good,” recalled Vedder.
“Then we just walked out to the field and it was that calm and a little bit of glow from a certain amount of work lights at Wrigley and the sky was just starting to lighten up a little bit from the east and it wasn’t until we just laid in the outfield grass that we could really, without saying a word, we could hear people on the faraway rooftops and balconies and still singing and still cheering.”
“We didn’t have to say anything. We just started laughing thinking what just happened and them going to the World Series.”
