The Chicago Cubs are undoubtedly one of major league baseballs most storied and historic franchises. Despite their complete lack of success since last appearing in a World Series in 1945, they remain one of baseballs most popular teams, with millions of fans throughout the United Stated and all over the world. The Cubs are one of baseballs longest continually running major league baseball teams, tracing their origins to the beginning of the National League in 1876. While the National Association - founded in 1871 - included the Boston (Atlanta) Braves, both teams have been in existence since the official beginning of the National League in 1876. However, the Cubs are the longest continually-running franchise in the same city in the history of baseball, since the Braves have played in Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta. Despite this overall lack of success since 1945, the Chicago Cubs have fielded some of the best baseball players in the history of major league baseball. Players like A.G. Spalding, Cap Anson, Mordecai Brown, and Tinker to Evers to Chance are featured in this book along with the more recent Cub greats that include Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Ryne Sandberg. This book will cover those specific players rather than the team as a whole, focusing of course on their years as a member of the Chicago Cubs.
