Few and Chosen Cubs: Defining Cubs Greatness Across the Eras
About the Book
Cursed or not, the Chicago Cubs have been one of the most talent-laden teams in the history of baseball --- and that tradition of excellence continues today. Cap Anson, Gabby Hartnett, Ernie Banks, Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson, Greg Maddux, Sammy Sosa...the list is virtually endless. Rating the top five Cubs of all time at each position would be a daunting task sure to spark countless hours of heated debate among the Wrigley Field faithful, but former Cubs great Ron Santo has done just that. In Few and Chosen, he has selected the top five players at each position, as well as the five all-time greatest Cubs managers and teams. His compilation evokes cherished memories of one of the richest histories in sports and fuels the eternal optimism that has defined this beloved franchise.
