Jeremy Piven sings Take Me Out to the Ballgame

"Entourage" star and Chicago native Jeremy Piven was in the Windy City and sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on Tuesday at Wrigley Field.

The die-hard Cubs and Bears fan has been in London for seven months a year since 2012 shooting the television show, "Mr Selfridge."

Tuesday marked Piven's first trip back to Wrigley Field in quite some time, and he was happy to be back at the Friendly Confines.

"I miss my Cubs and I miss my Bears. I'm not going to lie to you," he told Len and JD. "They don't know what baseball is there in the UK. So I'm just happy to be here, man. It's great to be back."

Check out Piven's rendition in the video above. Piven also threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the contest, which can be seen here.

Cubs Talk Podcast: Cubs offense takes a step in right direction, when will rotation follow?

For the first time in almost two weeks, the Cubs offense started to look more like the team we know they can be in Wednesday afternoon's victory over the Brewers. But when will the starting rotation follow? Kyle Hendricks pitched better than his stat line once again, but it's getting late in the season to continue to use that rationale for any Cubs starter.

Kelly Crull and Tony Andracki break down the Cubs-Brewers series and Kelly sits down with David Bote for a 1-on-1 chat about his whirlwind week. Leila Rahimi also catches up with MLB Network's Dan Plesac to get his thoughts on Javy Báez's place in the NL MVP race, how the Central division is shaping up and X-factors for the Cubs and Brewers down the stretch.
