"1908, The Cubs and the Dawn of the 20th Century"
The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, perhaps the most controversial and just plain crazy season of all time. This slide presentation reviews the unlikely events leading up to that World Series, and their tragic consequences. The season is also placed in the context of a quickly changing world stumbling its way into the modern era.
We've given this 45-minute presentation to organizations around the city, including the Chicago chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). Send an email to email@example.com for more information.
