Essential Games Of The Chicago Cubs
The dynamic between Wrigley Field, the home team Chicago Cubs, and their devoted passionate fans exceeds any normal measurements. A connection of team, place, and supporters has stirred emotions across more than five generations and continues today.
This extraordinary collection of Cubs baseball games showcases four game telecasts that feature legendary lineups spanning five decades. The first game salutes a star-studded lineup featuring four Hall of Famers, and managed by one too (Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Ferguson Jenkins, Leo Durocher)!
The second game is a stunning display of immense talent, as Ryne Sanberg led a shocking defeat of the St. Louis Cardinals. Jumping ahead to 1998, the one-game NL Wild Card tiebreaker capped a remarkable summer at Wrigley Field as Steve Trachsel and the Cubs stifled the San Francisco Giants. Our closing game features a Kerry Wood clinching victory to propel the Lou Piniella-led Cubs to another celebration.
A special DVD audio feature allows fans to watch the television broadcast and listen to Cubs Radio Network announcers.
