    Wrigley 100 September 28: The Homer In The Gloamin’

    On this day in1938, Gabby Hartnett produced the greatest moment in Wrigley Field history, at least from the Cubs end of things.

It came down to a single game, an opportunity for redemption, and a memorable evening known forever […]

The story started in spring training when Dawson was a collusion casualty and looking for a place to play. He offered Dallas Green a blank check and the Cubs GM quickly accepted. Rick Sutcliffe lobbied heavily for Dawson’s addition and was thrilled with his new right […]
