Bill Veeck: “There isn’t going to be room for us bums.”

Last night, the Cubs won Game 5 of the World Series, and will return to Cleveland on Tuesday. Over the last three games at Wrigley Field, tens of thousands of people descended on the Lakeview neighborhood, many of them for the first time.

In this clip, bleacher regular Bill Veeck, who probably went to more than forty games in 1984, pokes fun at the fancy newcomers who showed up only for the postseason.

This video was shot for a Time Out episode devoted to the Cubs in 1984, when they were in the playoffs. You can watch the episode in its entirety here.
