Ernie Banks Joined Pearl Jam On Stage At Wrigley

Pearl Jam played a rain-delayed show at Wrigley Field Friday night and before Eddie Vedder began singing the Cubs tribute song "All The Way," he introduced Ernie Banks, to the delight of the Chicago crowd.


After the song—which, legend has it, Vedder penned after Banks asked him to write a song about the Cubs—Banks told the crowd the glove he was holding belonged to five-year-old Eddie Vedder and that he would be taking it home with him. That's a pretty cool souvenir for both guys.
