HUMBOLDT PARK — Frank Robb, Chicago’s newest celebrity after breezing into town and catching the elusive Humboldt Park Lagoon alligator in a day, will soon bask in the spoils of his victory.

On Tuesday night — presumably after he gets some sleep — Robb will throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field before the Cubs take on the Reds at 7:05, according to the Cubs.

And on Wednesday morning, he’ll flip the switch on Buckingham Fountain, according to the Chicago Dept. of Animal Care and Control.

Can a key to the city be far behind?
