Answer: If you believe in ghosts, this story’s for you. Charlie Grimm was the Chicago Cubs manager during the 1940s. He led the Cubs to pennants in 1932, 1935 and 1945 and became one of the most beloved managers in Cubs history. When Grimm died in 1983, his wife made a request that his ashes be buried at Wrigley Field. His ashes were buried at the “Friendly confines”. Since his burial, many workers who worked at Wrigley recalled seeing his ghost around the front offices late at night. Many security guards have recalled hearing the phone ring in the Cub’s dugout in the wee hours of the morning. Many believe that Charlie Grimm’s ghost is trying to call up a pitcher from the bullpen.
