The Harry Caray statue at Wrigley Field is located at the corner of Sheffield and Addison right near the entrance of the bleacher's. A fitting place for Harry's statue as he would occassionally call a game from the bleacher's at Wrigley. Harry was always known as being a fan favorite and now everyone that enter's the bleacher's for a Cubs game can remember Harry!! It was once at the corner of Sheffield and Addison (the unveiling being held on August 12, 1999) before being moved to make room for Billy William's statue. The rededication was held on September 1, 2010. Here is a good clip of the ceremony.

Do you know which team this is? Apparantely, the owner wanted him to change his famous "Holy Cow" to "Holy Mule". What was he thinking?
