What Happened To Harry Caray Statue? – Wrigley Field 2/9/11

Posted on 09 February 2011 by Lou

The Cubs are still investigating an act of vandalism to the Harry Caray statue outside the entrance to the Bud Light Bleachers at Wrigley Field.  The word “Sox” was “graffiti’d” on the statue along with another word that was illegible.  The Cubs have already removed the white spray paint as they are still gathering information about the incident.

Harry Caray’s statue was moved from the corner of Addison and Sheffield during the 2010 MLB season last year to its current location at the corner of Waveland and Sheffield.  The last time the Harry Caray statue had been vandalized was in October 2007 when Chicago police had to remove the remains of a dead goat carcass from the statue.   The statue was also damaged during the preparation for the Northwestern-Illinois college football game this past November when a work truck accidentally struck and damaged the base.  Full repairs to the statue are expected to completed prior to the start of the 2011 MLB schedule.

I assume the Cubs have security cameras all over the place at Wrigley Field, so they should get to the bottom of this pretty quickly.  We’ll keep you posted as soon as we can confirm anything further on who damaged the Harry Caray Statue…
