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.

Sammy Sosa's sixty-plus home runs are here too - together with later allegations regarding corked bats and steroids."
