A charter member of the National League, the Cubs were born in 1876 - the same year the Seventh Cavalry fought at Little Big Horn. Cap Anson, baseball's first superstar and possibly the finest player of the 19th century, played for early Cubs squads. In the early years of the 20th century, the fantastic double-play combination of Tinkers to Evers to Chance was immortalized in verse. Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, Grover Cleveland Alexander, and Fergie Jenkins rank among baseball's greatest pitchers, while hitters Kiki Cuyler, Hack Wilson, Billy Herman, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, and Sammy Sosa have put up amazing numbers. "Amazing Stories From the Cubs Dugout" is crammed with stories, quotes, and anecdotes about these greats as well as unforgettable characters such as Dave Kingman and Jose Cardenal. The story of the Cubs is part legend, part pathos, often heroic, and, on occasion, hilarious. This humorous and revealing title lets readers bite off a huge chunk of tasty Cubs' fun, fantasy, heartbreak, and happiness during unforgettable afternoons in the sun, rain, wind, and fog that make every inning an adventure at Wrigley Field.
