The KIng of Wrigley Field

"Jody, Jody Davis, the catcher with no peer.
Jody, Jody Davis, the king of Wrigley Field."

Back in the day, when Harry Carey was still alive, he had the habit of singing silly songs during the broadcasts. One of his "greatest hits" was the "Jody Davis song," sung to the theme from the Davy Crockett show.

Anyway, the Cubs announced today that Davis, always a fan favorite, will be managing their Class A team in Peoria, IL. Davis has been managing Little League and high school teams over the past few years. He also managed the Calgary Outlaws to a championship in the Canadian Baseball League in 2003.

That is so cool! Brings back the early bandwagon days when cable was getting popular and WGN took the Cubs nationwide.
