It has been a long time. Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance--that "trio of bear cubs" immortalized in poem and enshrined as a unit in Cooperstown--formed the core of a ball club that brought Chicago baseball fans backtoback World Series championships 100 years ago. And fans are still waiting for victory number three. Chicago Cubs: Tinker to Evers to Chance brings the reader back to the notsohalcyon days of spitball pitchers, insidethepark home runs, and an era when raucous fans lined the foul lines, often a little too close for comfort for the visiting ballplayers. Beginning in 1898 with the acquisition of a green Frank Chance and following the team's exploits through the 1916 season, the last for Joe Tinker in a Cubs uniform, this is the story of Wrigleyville's favorite tenants, before there was a Wrigleyville.

This year-by-year summary includes Standings, lists of pitchers and batters, in-season and post-season play, League news games, year-end awards and outcomes to each World Series.

Led by 4 future Hall of Famers, Leo Durocher’s Cubbies brought north side fans thrills, joy, but also deep heartache. 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. Then, 2 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 will 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.
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.
