Billy Williams sings "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"

Cubs Hall of Famer Billy Williams was on hand at Wrigley Field Thursday night to sing "Take me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch.

Before flexing his pipes, the legendary slugger gave a shout-out to Ron Santo, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Ernie Banks in late July.
