From the Inside Flap

For the past 60 years, the Chicago Cubs and WGN-TV have combined to bring a long-running, real-life serial program of joy, frustration, and passion--first to Chicago, then to a national cable audience. The WGN/Cubs relationship is unparalleled in the sports world, and the Cubs have been transformed into America's Team with loyal fans spread across the country. Cubs Forever celebrates the 60-year romance between the team, the superstation, and the fans. It brings to life some of the great games and moments in the team's history, such as Ernie Banks's 500th home run, the first night game at Wrigley Field, the 23-22 slugfest, and four no-hitters. Add in stories from the men who work behind the scenes at Wrigley Field and WGN, plus interviews with the team's many stars over this six-decade period, and you have a baseball bonanza for fans of all ages.

Cubs legends such as Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, and Ryne Sandberg; broadcasters Harry Caray, Jack Brickhouse, and Steve Stone; plus Cub fans from Bonnie Hunt to Jimmy Buffett to Bill Murray, commiserate on the ups and downs of being a Cubs fan.

Cubs photographer Stephen Green brings each page to life with a colorful selection of photographs from signature moments in Cubs history along with stunning new portraits of Cubs legends. In addition, Cubs Forever comes with a special DVD containing interviews with key Cubs players and broadcasters. Their unique insights, stories, and humor add a dimension that cannot be covered in the book alone.

Everybody who is now or has ever been a Chicago Cub's fan needs to own this book, which comes with a great video of exciting moments in Cub's history. The stories and photos are priceless. A special tribute to WGN Chicago for their T.V. coverage of Cub's Baseball for the last 60 years.

My husband and I saw the special on WGN so I got him the book for Fathers' Day. He loved it and keeps it by his chair. Great present but watch the video also, it brought tears to my eyes. Is this finally our year?

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who grew-up watching the Cubs on a little B&W portable TV along with a few games a year out at the friendly confines, will immediately be transported into their youth. The book includes a nice DVD video with some great interviews, none of them lengthy, that give the book some real added punch. Goes past just the players on the field, to describe in detail the WGN team that made televised baseball a true art-form. Arnie Harris, the WGN producer and mastermind behind it all, stands out as the greatest producer in sports history once you've read the book.

An especially timely book now that WGN and the Cubs are heading their separate ways. In many ways that suggests the beginning of the end for the Cubs as many of us knew them. Going forward, my expectation is that the Cubs will move to a new stadium in Rosemont within 15 years, followed by leaving Chicago altogether soon after that. But for now, there's still a chance to relive what was the greatest sports team-up any kid could have ever asked for, WGN and the Chicago Cubs.

This book will tell you why the CHICAGO CUBS and WRIGLEY FIELD are perhaps the best place in AMERICA to watch a ball game.From the crew of WGN and broadcasters to the players who played there for 60 years, the book is filled with anecdotes about that famous mystique surrounding the team, even though they never won the WORLD SERIES in 100 years.It's about the only baseball team in baseball that had all their home games televised since 1948.It is not surprizing to hear grown ups say that they used to watch the end of the games when they came back from school.For a long time,the CUBS only played during day time.And there is also the ivy and the way they take care of it during the season etc.The dvd is accessory because the meat is really in the book.Any baseball fan will enjoy reading that book.

This is a must have for any real Cubs fan. If you lived through the 50's and 60's with the Cubs, and even if you didn't, the nostalgia and information contained within these covers would make even Steve Goodman happy.

This was a gift to my mom & dad, which they just loved because they are both huge Cubs fans. We went to Wrigley Field for their 50th anniversary with 150 family & friends. This was the perfect gift!
