This Day in Ballpark History: Organ belonging to music legend finds new home

This Day in Ballpark History: December 5, 2015

The White Sox hold their annual charity sale, with Nancy Faust's practice organ up for bid. This is the organ that Faust used at her home to perfect the many tunes played at old Comiskey Park and later new Comiskey Park/U.S. Cellular Field. Red Sox organist Josh Kantor posts the winning bid at $1,400.

The legendary Faust entertained White Sox fans for 41 seasons (1970-2010) and is best known for her version of "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye." Harry Caray's rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" began while he was with the Sox, and to Faust's accompaniment .

Faust served as organist for several other teams, including the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota North Stars.

Lori Moreland is the current Sox organist - and a unique feature of Guaranteed Rate Field is that you can walk past her booth and listen in!

Ballpark Road Trips visits Guaranteed Rate Field twice in 2020. We'll be there to kick off our Chicago trip on July 7, and then on July 29 as part of our tour from St. Louis.
