The Forgotten 1970 Chicago Cubs: Go And Glow
Chicago Cubs fans always will remember the beloved 1969 team. Yet the 1970 Cubs are, in many ways, more interesting.
The Cubs added fascinating characters like Joe Pepitone and Milt Pappas to the legendary nucleus of Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Ernie Banks. The team came closer than in any year between 1945 and 1984—finishing only five games out of first place in one of baseball’s hottest pennant races.
Offering a fast-paced look at the season month by month, William S. Bike moves beyond wins, losses and statistics to relive Ernie Banks’s 500th home run, the addition of “the basket” to the outfield walls, and other iconic moments from a landmark year at Wrigley Field. You’ll feel like you’re there at the ballpark when you read The Forgotten 1970 Chicago Cubs: Go And Glow.
