The episode covers a rare intimate look into Caray's childhood and relationship with his family, including interviews with Atlanta Braves broadcaster and Harry's grandson, Chip Caray, and Dutchie Caray, Harry's widow. Famous for his "Holy Cow" expression, baseball broadcasters Joe Buck, Bob Costas, Pat Hughes, Tim McCarver, Steve Stone and Rick Sutcliffe describe Caray's unique broadcast style that endeared him to generations of fans. Former Cubs President John McDonough and Chicago columnist Rick Kogan detail Caray's special bond with Chicago, the city where Caray called White Sox games for 11 seasons and Cubs games for 16 seasons. Longtime comedians and Chicago natives Tom Dreesen and Jeff Garlin highlight Caray's colorful personality, which was made memorable by his signature rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch of games.
