Associated Press

CHICAGO – Even years before 7-year-old Wrigley was born, his father Jerry Fields says he’d already decided what he’d do. Coming from a family of Cubs fans and with his particular last name, he decided to name his first son after the Friendly Confines. (gag- ed.) Little Wrigley Fields of Lockport will meet his destiny on August 29th at a Cubs’ home game against the Philadelphia Phillies when he’ll throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field. His mother Kathy says she mentioned Wrigley’s name in front of a former Cubs official, who promised her Wrigley would get to throw out the first pitch. Kathy says when Jerry first told her he wanted to name his first son Wrigley, she initially thought he was joking. But Jerry later stood firm when they found out they were having a boy.
