It has been a long time. Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance that trio of bear cubs immortalized in poem and enshrined as a unit in Cooperstown formed the core of a ball club that brought Chicago baseball fans backtoback World Series championships 100 years ago. And fans are still waiting for victory number three. Chicago Cubs: Tinker to Evers to Chance brings the reader back to the notsohalcyon days of spitball pitchers, insidethepark home runs, and an era when raucous fans lined the foul lines, often a little too close for comfort for the visiting ballplayers. Beginning in 1898 with the acquisition of a green Frank Chance and following the team s exploits through the 1916 season, the last for Joe Tinker in a Cubs uniform, this is the story of Wrigleyville s favorite tenants, before there was a Wrigleyville."
