Ep. 688 – Hal Bock (Sports Author)

The Chicago Cubs were one of the luckiest teams at the start of the 1900s, according to former Associated Press writer Hal Bock, author of the book, The Last Chicago Cubs Dynasty. Bock covers the entire Cubs reign to the World Series from 1906 to 1910, complete with the biographies of some of the more illustrious characters in Major League Baseball History. Bock talks about the legendary double-play combination of Tinker to Evers to Chance, whether Cubs catcher Johnny Kling should be held responsible for bringing bad luck by leaving the team for a promising billiards career, and what the “Merkle boner” did for the 1908 playoffs to send the Cubs back to the World Series.
