Legendary NBA sideline reporter Craig Sager threw out the first pitch and sang Take Me Out to the Ball Game at the Chicago Cubs game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.

Sager initially wore a suit before changing into a jersey courtesy of manager Joe Maddon.

On the Cubs broadcast, he shared his memories of meeting Ernie Banks. He threw out the first pitch to first baseman Anthony Rizzo as part of Conquer Cancer Day. Rizzo was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in April 2008 and underwent chemotherapy for six months.
