Cubs\' Organist Gary Pressey Retiring After 33 Years 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Sep 14, 2019 11:52 pm

Gary Pressy has played the organ at Wrigley Field for 2,679 consecutive Chicago Cubs games -- and counting. That streak, however, will come to an end after this season.

The 61-year-old Pressy, who began his career with the Cubs in 1987, is retiring after this season.

\"I\'ve been there a third of a century, 33 years, and I think the cup is full,\" Pressy told the Chicago Tribune on Friday. \"I was debating it back and forth, but I really just wanted to spend more quality time with my family. Around the All-Star break I really got to thinking about it and made my decision.\"
