Shit, it's almost September.

 

Weekend:

 

Which Cubs managers have managed the NL team in the MLB All-Star Game?

 

 

Monday:

 

Former Cubs player and manager, Don Zimmer, did what at home plate before a 1951 home game in Elmira, NY?

The other manager is Dusty.  He managed after he came over from the pennant winning Giants (2003). 

 

Don Zimmer got married before a game (I guess it was 1951 - and yes, that is actually before my time on this earth).

Hartnett, Baker and Grimm managed the NL squad and Spriggs was the officiant at Zimmer's wedding.
