Starting Friday, the Cubs are back at Wrigley Field and looking to make an impact on the National League playoff race. The NL East-leading Braves come to town for a three-game series over the weekend, and the Wild Card-leading Pirates will invade the Friendly Confines for a three-game set on Monday. If you’re headed out to Wrigley Field for the final homestand of the 2013 season, here’s your seventh-inning stretch lineup:

Friday – 9/20
Dennis Miller, comedian and TV personality

Saturday – 9/21
TBD

Sunday – 9/22
Wayne Messmer, regular Cubs anthem performer

Monday – 9/23
Tom Dreesen, comedian

No Bill Muray?

No Bill Murray or Jim Belushi or Dan Akriod or anyone with any ties to Chicago besides Fergie and the grounds crew?

Um, you do know that Wayne Messmer was originally hired by the Cubs as a P.A. announcer in 1985 and has had ties to the Chicago Sting / White Sox / Blackhawks and Wolves. Tom Dressen goes even farther back as a comedy duo with Tim Reid in the late 60’s and is a HUGE Cubs fan. BTW, Dan Aykroyd is from Canada, not Chicago…
