Abstract:

"The Cubs chronicles the long, rich, counterintuitive history of this team in all its depth, nuance, and color. We catch a rare glimpse of the early days of Chicago baseball in the 1860s and 1870s and witness the magical 1906 season, with its 116 wins, still the most in major league history. Ernie Banks's legendary career is covered in detail, as are decisive seasons, such as 1969's heart-breaking loss to the Amazin' Mets. Sammy Sosa's sixty-plus home runs are here too - together with later allegations regarding corked bats and steroids.".

"The authors cast an analytical eye on the tumultuous reign of chewing-gum magnate William Wrigley and his son Philip, as well as the Tribune Company's planned sale of the Cubs. And we hear the true story behind the "Curse of the Billy Goat" - what has really "cursed" the Cubs all these years."--BOOK JACKET.
