CHICAGO – Back in the 1980s and 1990s, his sign was one of the welcome sights in the bleachers at Wrigley Field.
Indeed Dave Cihla made the “Shawon-0-Meter” famous.
His posting of the average of Cubs shortstop Shawon Dunston became a hit among the fans and commentators during his run with the team. In fact the “Shawon-O-Meter” signs of the past actually have found a place in the remodeled Cubs’ clubhouse.
But with a new era of the team came the time for a new sign – one that represents the current club on their way to making history. Once again, Cihla went with a popular Cubs player wearing the No. 12.
During the 2016 World Series he created the “Schwarb-0-Meter” to tell fans the slugging percentage of Kyle Schwarber – who returned as a designated hitter after a serious knee injury in April.
Like before, Cihla updated the board during the game and once again got some notice from fans as the Cubs went onto win their first championship in 108 years.
On Tuesday, Dave brought the sign to the set of Sports Feed for a bit of “Show-and-Tell” with Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman.
