The only organization to still have an organist play introduction music, the Cubbies have little influence on their at-bat songs.

Organist and Chicago icon Gary Pressey has been tickling the keys at Wrigley Field for years, and generally prefers traditional tunes over more current hits. Since there is no vocal accompaniment, Cubs fans have fun figuring out what song is being played and why the song was chosen -- but only Pressey can solve such mysteries.
