While the Cubs' brand new video board is now a permanent fixture of Wrigley Field's outfield, the battle over the century-old stadium's new digital signage just doesn't seem to have an end in sight. The nearby rooftop owners have lost their fight against the Ricketts' new video signage, however, Cubs fans are now demanding that the team display the late Harry Caray, the team's longtime announcer, on the video scoreboard for the traditional singing of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch.

So far, an online petition for the cause has gathered nearly 3,000 signatures, with a goal of reaching 5,000 supporters. The eccentric broadcaster spent 16 years with the Cubs, and became legendary for his rendition of the classic song both with the White Sox and the Cubbies. And while Wrigley Field has dramatically changed since the days when Harry Caray held it down in the booth, some Cubs fans are looking to recapture the magic that once made the Friendly Confines a special place for baseball fans.
