Before their well-documented fall to the NY Mets, the faithful watched the team rise to first, observe Billy Williams continue his consecutive-game streak, the formation of the Bleacher Bums, and Ken Holtzman’s no-hitter. But read on! In 1970, Ernie Banks hit a historic HR; two pitchers (one a rookie) tossed no-hitters in 1972; in 1976, a Cubs CF rescued the burning of the American flag; another Cub led the league in HRs in 1977, and in 1979, a strong wind at Wrigley before the Cubs/Phillies game made the final 23-22 score not much of a surprise. Two years later, after owning the club 65 years, the Wrigley family sold the club to the Tribune Company. What followed was a new, exciting era emerged, featuring a young infielder Dallas Green “stole” in a trade. Yes, this book includes the 2016 Championship team, but along the way, find the 5 Cy Young Award winners, the 4 Rookies of the Year, and the 4 MVP winners. This is what you get… § Yearly Standings, including those teams who placed 1st in Batting, Pitching, and Fielding. § Top Cub pitchers and hitters, a list of rookies, and those they obtained in a trade. § Club news plus dozens of noteworthy games (the winning or losing pitcher and batting stars) § League news, a list of other league games, and year-end awards.

Summary : At the start of the 1984 season, the Cubs culture, both inside Wrigley and out, began changing in a positive way, thanks in part to GM Dallas Green. The former Phillies manager assembled a playoff team - many of whom were not on the roster 3 years earlier. With Harry Caray at the mic, familiar names like Ryne Sandberg, Rick Sutcliffe, Steve Trout, Lee Smith, Gary Matthews, Leon Durham, Jody Davis, and Bobby Dernier took the field. In true fashion, more heartache came at the hands of the San Diego Padres, but in years to come there was the Hawk, night games at Wrigley, Mad Dog Maddux, Slammin’ Sammy Sosa, and a tall, 20-year old rookie pitcher from Texas who pitched a game for the ages in only his 5th start. Several years later came a new GM, a new coach, and a long, long-awaited World Series trophy. § Yearly Standings, including a comparison with those placing 1st in Batting, Pitching, and Fielding. § Top pitchers, top hitters, a list of rookies, and those obtained in a trade. § Club news and dozens of noteworthy games (the winning or losing pitcher and batting stars) § League news, listing of other league games, and year-end awards.

Summary : A captivating blend of reportage and memoir exploring the history of the Chicago Cubs When Rich Cohen was eight years old, his father took him to see a Cubs game. On the way out of the park, his father asked him to make a promise. “Promise me you will never be a Cubs fan. The Cubs do not win,” he explained, “and because of that, a Cubs fan will have a diminished life determined by low expectations. That team will screw up your life.” As a result, Cohen became not just a Cubs fan but one of the biggest Cubs fans in the world. In this book, he captures the story of the team, its players and crazy days. Billy Sunday and Ernie Banks, Three Finger Brown and Ryne Sandberg, Bill Buckner, the Bartman Ball, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo—the early dominance followed by a 107 year trek across the wilderness. It’s all here—not just what happened, but what it felt like and what it meant. He searches for the cause of the famous curse. Was it the billy goat, kicked out of Wrigley Field in Game 5 of the 1945 World Series, or does it go back further, to the very origins of the franchise? Driven mad with futility, he went on the road with the team in search of answers, interviewed great players present and past, researched in libraries but also in the bleachers, double-fisted, a frosty malt in each hand, demanding answers. He came to see the curse as a burden but also as a blessing. Cubs fans are unique, emissaries from a higher realm, warning of hubris and vanity. The blue cap with the red C said, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” He interviewed the architects of the 2016 Cubs, the team that broke the curse. Here’s what he asked: How the hell did you do it? He was at (almost) every game of the 2016 playoff run—a run that culminated in (maybe) the single greatest baseball game ever played. He was excited but also terrified. Losing is easy. What would it mean to win? Wearing a Yankees hat meant corporate excellence. Wearing a Mets hat meant miracles. But wearing a Cubs hat meant loving the game on its most humdrum afternoon—September 13, 1979, say, 14 games out of first place, Larry Bittner driving in Ivan DeJesus. Would we lose that? Would being a Cubs become ordinary? A mix of memoir, reporting, history and baseball theology, this book, forty years in the making, has never been written because it never could be—only with the 2016 World Series can the true arc of the story finally be understood.

Summary : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER USA TODAY BESTSELLER Packed with "compelling inside stories" (Chicago Tribune), Teammate is the inspiring memoir from "Grandpa Rossy," the veteran catcher who became the heart and soul of the 2016 Chicago Cubs championship team. In 2016 the Cubs snapped a 108-year curse, winning the World Series in a history-making, seven-game series against the Cleveland Indians. Of the many storylines to Chicago's fairytale season, one stood out: the late-career renaissance of David Ross, the 39-year-old catcher who had played back-up for 13 of his 15 pro seasons. Beyond Ross's remarkably strong play, he became the ultimate positive force in the Cubs locker room, mentoring and motivating his fellow players, some of them nearly twenty years his junior. Thanks to Cubs Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, "Grandpa Rossy" became a social media sensation. No one, however, could have predicted that Ross's home run in his final career at bat would help seal the Cubs championship. Now, in Teammate, Ross shares the inspiring story of his life in baseball, framed by the events of that unforgettable November night.
