The Coach's Corner commentator got the chance to participate in a long-standing seventh-inning tradition singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game at Wrigley Field, during Saturday's contest between the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago Cubs.

The Hockey Night in Canada Coach's Corner analyst was invited to throw out the first pitch and sing during the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field in Chicago 0:55

This isn't the only time the NHL has invaded Wrigley Field.

Three members of the Chicago Blackhawks — Jonathan Toews, Brent Seabrook, and Duncan Keith — have also serenaded Cubs fans in the seventh-inning.
