THE CHICAGO CUBS

A Chicago sportswriter tells of the vicissitudes of the growth of the Cubs, present champions of the National League. Here is their history- in three periods,- the Spalding Anson one, the Frank Chance one, the Wrigley dynasty. Baseball fans will find the book interestingly written, abounding in personalities,-players, managers, executives. It reveals what big business baseball really is, though the author never loses zest for the game as sport. Not only for Cub fans but for baseball fans generally- National League and American League as well. The Cubs have played in ten modern World Series, losing all with the exception of two victories in 1907 and 1908. So -- apparently- you don't have to win the World Series to have your satellites (I suppose I'm speaking out of turn, but I don't know much more about baseball than about archery.)
