April 26, 1941

A baseball tradition is born

The Chicago Cubs were more surprised with the results than their fans when they took an organ to the field on April 26, 1941. What was meant as a one-day gimmick, turned into a baseball tradition--the baseball organist.

The Dodgers at Ebbets Field was the second team to install an organ, and the rest, as they say, is history.
