    Cubs play-by-play man Pat Hughes imagines historic call

    Pat Hughes, radio voice of the Cubs for 21 years, has been thinking about what he might say if the Cubs win the World Series. His words would reverberate for decades, played and replayed for as long as there is baseball. No pressure. "The main thing is you have to capture the moment," said Hughes, 61. "You want to be true to the call. You want to be as accurate as possible. But let me tell you, it is not easy."
