Full Description

With the recent success of the Gas House Gang as backdrop, the National League prepared for the 1935 season. The United States was still in the Great Depression, but executives in baseball predicted a financial comeback during the year, and Chicago's ""windy"" politicians demanded a pennant-contending ballclub. Yes, there was a time when the Cubs were expected to win. This book chronicles the Cubs' 1935 season and the many on- and off-field events that impacted the game for years to come: Fans who had once turned to baseball for heroes and men of character now laughed at players' uncouth antics and fun-loving carousing reported in the morning newspapers; Babe Ruth debuted in the American League with the Boston Braves, and retired soon after; the first major league night game was played in Cincinnati; the chewing gum king was the first to broadcast all of his team's games on the radio; and the Cubs won 21 games in a row in September to take the pennant - the last Cubs team to win 100 games in a season.
