In this newly revised edition of Chicago Cubs: Where Have You Gone?, Chicago sportswriter Fred Mitchell catches up with over fifty former Cubs players—some of them famous, some of them obscure, all of them unforgettable. From Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks, to lesser known players such as Pete LaCock, avid fans of this long-suffering team will remember them for every heartbreak, every costly error and, yes, every glorious moment. Chicago Cubs: Where Have You Gone? serves as both a yearbook of unforgettable memories and an “alumni guide” for fans to find out where their heroes have gone since capturing their full attention at Wrigley Field. Readers will find out what happened after the gloves came off with such Cubs greats as Ferguson Jenkins, Andy Pafko, Dickie Noles, Billy Williams, Milt Pappas, Bobby Dernier, Lee Smith, Scott Sanderson, Shawon Dunston, Ed Lynch, Don Zimmer, Steve Trout, Ron Santo, Steve Stone, Kerry Wood, and so many more.
The Chicago Cubs are one of NL's oldest teams - first known as the White Stockings in 1876 (you read that right), the Colts, the Orphans, then finally the Cubs in 1902. This team's colorful history includes dynasties, lots of World Series (but precious few championships), 3 legendary infielders given immortality in a Franklin Adams poem, record breaking players, a banned goat that led to a curse, a (now) landmark stadium that was built for a team called the Whales, a beloved shortstop turned first baseman, the last MLB team to add lights, and after 108 years of futility and heartache, a championship trophy in 2016. 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. Whether you're a baseball fan or Cubs fan, herein are your heroes and a lot of memories.
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.

No doubt, you’ve heard about the Cubs’ decades-long run of futility. They hadn’t won a pennant in seventy-one years or a World Series in a record 108 years. To the frustration of Cubs fans everywhere, the team often missed chances with soul-crushing defeats. But after a complete teardown that resulted in a 100-loss season in 2012, Theo Epstein and his baseball staff reversed that with the Cubs of 2016, a team that was not only supremely talented, but cared nothing for all the media narratives of losing. They did things during the regular season that no Cubs club had done in more than a century, including earning the most wins for the franchise since 1910. The club went on to defeat the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League playoffs before beating the Cleveland Indians to win the World Series. Anthony Rizzo, MVP candidate Kris Bryant, Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, manager Joe Maddon, and fan favorites like Javier Baez and David Ross are the heroes of the 2016 Cubs’ story. Told by Al Yellon, managing editor of SB Nation’s Bleed Cubbie Blue, A Season to Remember chronicles not only the 2016 Cubs’ rise to the top of the baseball heap, but the team’s—and the fans’—long journey to get there.

On October 13, 1903, Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill Dinneen recorded the first final out of the World Series by striking out Honus Wagner of the Pittsburgh Pirates in game eight of the first World Series in front of over 7,400 people at Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds in Boston. By getting the final out, Dinneen helped the Red Sox capture the first of their eight World Series championships.

There is a long-standing relationship between broadcasting and sports, and nowhere is this more evident than in the marriage of baseball and radio: a slow sport perfectly suited to the word-painting of broadcasters. This work covers the development of the baseball broadcasting industry from the first telegraph reports of games in progress, the influence of early pioneers at Pittsburgh’s KDKA and Chicago’s WGN, including the first World Series broadcast, the launch of the Telstar Satellite, the Carlton Fisk homerun in the 1975 World Series, which changed how baseball is broadcast, through the latest computer graphics, HD television, and the Internet.
