“Pin-Up” of the Week: Harry Caray’s Restaurant Group Pin

Baseball has been around for a long time.  Over the years it has seen it’s share of colorful characters.  One of those colorful characters would have to be former broadcaster Harry Caray.

Harry Caray called games for the St. Louis Browns/Cardinals, Oakland A’s, Chicago White Sox, and Chicago Cubs.  Chicago is where he is known for doing his best work.  He loved getting the crowd to sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during the 7th inning stretch.  That was his signature thing to do along with those big glasses and funny catch phrases.  He occasionally liked to get off topic too.  I can still see Will Ferrell doing him on Saturday Night Live.

Like a lot of popular sports figures, Harry Caray got into the restaurant business.  Its not that uncommon for them to fizzle out after a few years, but Harry Caray’s restaurants are still going strong.  The Harry Caray Restaurant Group currently has seven restaurants under their management.  They opened their first place, Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in 1987, and it just snowballed from there.  They even have a place in Rosemont for those collectors looking to attend the National next year.

Pins like this pop-up for sale every now and then.  They don’t sell for too much, about $12.00.
