    Harry Caray will now greet Cubs fans entering on the bleachers side of Wrigley Field.

    The Cubs moved the statue from Sheffield and Addison avenues outside Wrigley Field to a new location near the gates at Sheffield and Waveland avenues. The re-location around the Friendly Confines made room for Hall of Fame Cub Billy Williams' statue.

    Harry Caray's widow, Dutchie, will take part in a re-dedication ceremony and toast at Wrigley Field today. Dutchie Caray will then throw a ceremonial first pitch before the Cubs-Pirates game.

    Harry Caray's Restaurant Group gave out 1,000 free bleacher tickets for today's game in honor of the ceremony.

    The Cubs plan to place Billy Williams' statue in Caray's old spot Tuesday, September 7th.
