Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews and defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook went to Wrigley Field to sing and try to rally the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field on Sunday.
Toews, Keith and Seabrook led the "Play Ball!" cheer before the game, then sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the iconic seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley.
The Cubs have not won the World Series since 1908 and have not played in the Fall Classic since 1945, but soliciting the help of Toews, Keith and Seabrook to help end the drought is a good choice. Those three have won three championships in Chicago, including in 2010 when the Blackhawks ended a 49-year Stanley Cup drought by defeating the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup Final in six games.
The Blackhawks ended "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" by imploring the Cubs to "get some runs," but Chicago's lineup was unable to solve Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw or closer Kenley Jansen in a 1-0 defeat that evened the best-of-7 series 1-1.
