"The Last Chicago Cubs Dynasty" with Hal Bock
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, May 5 at 7pm
“The Cubs became a metaphor for the underdog, the loser, lovable or not, that we as a species can’t help but instinctively pull for.” -Joe Mantegna, actor

The last time the Chicago Cubs played in the World Series, World War II had just ended. The last time they won a World Series, World War I had not yet begun. But from 1906 - 1910 the Cubs not only played in the World Series four of the five years, they won two World Championships, as well. It was a time when the Cubs ruled baseball, and no one could have imagined the roller coaster adventures that were ahead for this grand old franchise.

Distinguished writer Hal Bock returns to the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse and will tell the story of this legendary team, the characters who were central to its success, and the misfortunes which have plagued the team ever since.

Join us in the Clubhouse on May 5. RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “The Last Chicago Cubs Dynasty” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Hal Bock was a sportswriter and columnist with the Associated Press for over 40 years. During that time he covered 30 World Series, none of them including the Cubs. (Clubhouse)
