The last time the Cubs played in the World Series, World War II had just ended. The last time they won a World Series, World War I had t yet begun. But from 1906-1910 this franchise ruled baseball, reaching the World Series in four of five years and winning two World Championships. This book tells the story of the Last Chicago Cubs Dynasty, including profiles of star players such as pitcher Mordecai Three Finger Brown and the double play combination of Tinker to Evers to Chance. It was a time when the Cubs ruled baseball, and one could have imagined the roller coaster adventures that were ahead for this grand old franchise.
