Vacation Update #7 - Merkle's Bar and Grill

My grandfather is Fred Merkle who played baseball for over 20 years in the early 1900's. While we were in Chicago we visited the local bar that is named after him. (that's a pic of my grandfather on the sign).
We made sure to take some time to visit the bar so we could look around and take some pictures. They have a whole wall dedicated to him. The bar owners even gave us some "Merkle's Bar and Grill" tshirts! = - )
