Chicagoland native and famous Cubs superfan Patrick Stump will get a truly historic opportunity tonight. The Fall Out Boy singer will perform the national anthem at Game 3 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs' first World Series home game in 71 years.

After the Glenview, Ill. native opens the game, announcer Wayne Messmer will sing "God Bless America"; later, Bill Murray will perform "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch.

Billboard notes the Stump and his bandmates are longtime Cubbie fans, so this is undoubtedly a major moment for FOB. The series is currently tied with both the Cubs and Cleveland Indians having one win apiece. After two games in Cleveland, the next three will take place in ChiTown.
