Wrigley Field. June 8, 2017. Bobblehead night. Just another workday for Major League Baseball player Ben Zobrist ’04.
Side note: This was Ben’s bobblehead night. And there was a pre-game surprise waiting for him. Olivet Nazarene University and the Chicago Cubs arranged that surprise. His name was Tom Zobrist, Ben’s dad, and he was there to throw the first pitch to Ben.
“Just like old times but switched around,” Ben said to his dad after deftly catching the ball.
