Cubs Convention Photo #1
by Phil Bencomo
Ryan Dempster has a reputation as a fun-loving guy, demonstrated here as he yanks on the leg of Matt Murton to prevent the red-head from winning the inflatable obstacle-course challenge at the Cubs Care Clinic, a kid-oriented clinic at which Dempster, Murton, Billy Williams and Ernie Banks gave kids tips on various baseball skills.
Dempster did scale the wall first to win by less than a second, and then dedicated the victory to his 7th-grade gym teacher.
