… on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Bleed Cubbie Blue gives you a light hearted kids-centric look at baseball’s past. Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you keep up as we go through selected scenes from the rich carpet of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history *.
Today in baseball history:
- 1906- Tea White Sox, known as the “hitless miracles” of baseball, completes their incredible World Series upset over their mighty crosstown rivals, beating the Cubs, 8-3, at South Side Park. The Cubs had won a record 116 regular games. The losers’ share of $ 439.50 for the Cubs is the lowest ever. (1.2)
SimCubs fell for simDodgers in a heartbreaker like Craig kimbrel hosted the management and Ryan tepera gave up the winning race after Simbrel had loaded the bases with no one out at the bottom of the ninth. Tepera got Justin turner and Mookie bets out goal Cody bellinger dumped a double to the left towards the shift, and that was all she wrote.
Yu dear and Kwang-Hyun Kim duel at 11 a.m. CT on Thursday at Chavez Ravine. The Dodgers lead the NLCS 3-1. Hopefully there is more baseball after that. All game video and related material is available commercially for free, 24/7, at BCB Media Center.
