Uniform & Team History

When former Chicago Cub and longtime scout Lennie Merullo was invited back to Wrigley Field in 1969 to participate in an oldtimers game, this is the uniform he wore. A uniform was provided for him in 1999 when he joined our Oldtime Baseball Game as a coach (See: 1941 Chicago Cubs), but he chose to wear his No. 3 uniform. He continued to wear the No. 3 uniform in the Oldtime Baseball Game every year from 1999 through 2009.
