Tom Browning relived the time he sat on the Wrigley Field rooftop, and predicted a Eugenio Suarez homer

It was 25 years ago when Tom Browning took a seat on the Wrigley Field rooftop. On July 7, 1993, the 12-year veteran and 1991 All-Star pitcher snuck out of the bullpen during a game, walked across the street and invited himself to a party that was filled with Cubs fans. The fans welcomed him with open arms, laughing and drinking beers while Browning just chilled:

And on Saturday, while he was being interviewed by FOX Sports Ohio, he predicted a three-run home run by Eugenio Suárez.

In the top of the third inning of the Cubs' 8-7 win over the Reds on Saturday, Suarez hit a shot to deep-left field off Tyler Chatwood, just as Browning hoped:

Despite the home run, it was not enough to keep the Reds on top and the Cubs' comeback was the team's 27th come-from-behind win this season.
Nevertheless, Browning's visions of the future proved to be a very useful gift.
