Will they play Centerfield at Wrigley?

I haven't paid a lot of attention around here lately, and especially to the surplus of Wrigley threads since I didn't know I was going until last Thursday... But I don't think it's been mentioned yet and I'm shocked... Am I the only one who thinks they could or should cover Centerfield by John Fogerty? Sure it's cheesy, but people seem to go apeshit for that song at baseball games and it seems like it's THE official baseball pop or rock song! I am in a local band that got to play before one of our minor league games and I thought the crowd would love if we played that but the drummer can't stand thatbsong so my idea was shot down. I could totally hear Vedder singing this though... What do you think?

Also thought it would be fun if they played Sweet Home Chicago or something by the Blues Brothers. :)

Also I thought there was a thread about guess the opener at wrigley (along with a secret number) a few days ago but can't find it now. Any help on that?

    'Centerfield' would be awesome.

    Thanks! I don't know why but I'm getting the idea Porch will be the opener.

    I assume "go all the way" will be the baseball themed song instead of Centerfield.
