For more than 100 years the Chicago Cubs have been the "Lovable Losers," best known for their futility and popularity. But that all changed in 2016, when Joe Maddon's squad won the World Series, defeating the Cleveland Indians in an extra-inning Game 7 which will go down in history as one of the greatest games ever played. The colorful characters and great players who won the Word Series and fill Cubs history are captured in this book, brilliantly illustrated by Mark Anderson and thoughtfully capsulized by former Wall Street Journal columnist Frederick C. Klein.
It is the perfect book for parents wanting to introduce their children to the Cubs--or for fans of any age who dream of visiting the "Friendly Confines" without ever leaving home.
