Overview
The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago Cubs is a decade-by-decade look at one of baseball s most beloved if hard-luck teams, starting with the franchise s beginnings in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings and ending with the newfound success of Joe Maddon s present-day team.
For more than a century, the Chicago Tribune has documented every Cubs season through original reporting, photography, and box scores. For the first time, this mountain of Cubs history has been mined and curated by the paper s sports department into a single one-of-a-kind volume. Each era in Cubs history includes its own timeline, profiles of key players and coaches, and feature stories that highlight it all, from the heavy hitters to the no-hitters to the one-hit wonders.
And of course, you can t talk about the Cubs without talking about Wrigley Field. In this book, readers will find a complete history of that most sacred of American stadiums, where Hack Wilson batted in 191 runs still the major-league record in 1930, where Sammy Sosa earned the moniker Slammin Sammy, and where one day, without a doubt, the Cubs will once again play their way into the World Series. And maybe even win it . . .
The award-winning journalists, photographers, and editors of the Chicago Tribune have produced a comprehensive collector s item that every Cubs fan will love."
