“Bleacher Preacher” Jerry Pritikin who is flying from Chicago will receive the Hilda Award

Pritikin on Harry Caray's 10th Inning show, 1985.Jerry Pritikin has said that "the everyday fan here in Chicago has turned into an endangered species! For 25 years, I became part of the lore of the fabled fans in the cheap seats of the bleachers at the 'Friendly Confines.' However, there are no more cheap seats. In 1991, I boycotted Wrigley when they raised the price of a bleacher seat from 4 to 6 bucks. Today you almost have to file for bankruptcy at the price printed on the ticket ($75 for a kid or adult on a Saturday)."
