Craig Stadler, who won the 1982 Masters, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Chicago Cubs played the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field on Wednesday night.
Stadler, who now plays on the Champions Tour, was in town for the Encompass Championship which starts Friday at at North Shore Country Club in Glenview, Ill.
While Stadler didn't bring the same type of magic that Brittany Lincicome did when she threw the first pitch of the Giants' no-hitter against the Mets last month, he did sport some facial hair that would make Goose Gossage and Rollie Fingers proud. He was also wearing a Chicago Cubs jersey with an 82 on his back -- presumably in honor of his playoff win against Dan Pohl at the Masters.
Unfortunately, Stadler didn't lead the Wrigley faithful in the traditional singing of 'Take Me Out To The Ballgame' during the seventh-inning stretch. That honor went to long-time MLB reporter Peter Gammons.
