Synopsis

Game of My Life Chicago Cubs Memorable Stories of Cubs Baseball by Lew Freedman

Whether they wore white stockings or blue helmets, the baseball players of Chicago's North Side have always had great stories to tell. Now fans of this loveable franchise will finally get to hear from twenty-eight of the best players as they relive that singular moment which defined their Cubs career. In this newly updated edition of Game of My Life Chicago Cubs , veteran sportswriter Lew Freedman brings readers off the bench and onto the field with such greats as Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, Ferguson Jenkins and more. Ron Santo shares the advice he received from Ernie Banks as the nervous rookie waited for his first at-bat. Ryne Sandberg recaptures the magic as he runs the bases around Wrigley Field after hitting a game-winning homer. Mark Grace feels the thrill of hope as the Cubs head to the playoffs after capturing the wild card in 1998. Within these pages readers will find these stories and so much more. Without a doubt Game of My Life Chicago Cubs is a must-have for anyone who bleeds Cubbie blue.
