Iowa State men’s basketball coach Greg McDermott will see his favorite baseball team in person tonight, watching the Chicago Cubs-Los Angeles Dodgers NLDS Game One from a rooftop overlooking Wrigley Field.
McDermott and assistant coach Daniyal Robinson were scheduled to board a private plane Wednesday afternoon, land in Chicago, drive to Whitney Young High School to watch a prospective recruit and from there head to The Friendly Confines.
The ISU coaches will be atop a building on Waveland Avenue, behind the left field wall.
“We’re gonna have fun,” McDermott said this morning as he packed a briefcase in his office.
Hope he wore a heavy jacket. Temperatures will be in the low 40s to go with a steady breeze off Lake Michigan. Being that high up, the guys will feel it.
