BeschreibungIt has been a long time. Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chancethat trio of bear cubs immortalized in poem and enshrined as a unit in Cooperstownformed the core of a ball club that brought Chicago baseball fans back-to-back 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 not-so-halcyon days of spitball pitchers, inside-the-park 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 teams exploits through the 1916 season, the last for Joe Tinker in a Cubs uniform, this is the story of Wrigleyvilles favorite tenants, before there was a Wrigleyville.
