Madison Street Books to Host Talk on 1970 Chicago Cubs by William S. Bike
Author to discuss and sign copies of "The Forgotten 1970 Chicago Cubs: Go and Glow"
Bike will sign books between 1 and 3 p.m., and his talk will be at 2 p.m.
Offering a fast-paced look at the season month by month, The Forgotten 1970 Chicago Cubs: Go and Glow moves beyond wins, losses, and statistics to relive Ernie Banks's 500th home run, the addition of "the basket" to the outfield walls, good trades and bad trades, how manager Leo Durocher's radio show caused clubhouse chaos, death threats against third baseman Ron Santo, outfielders Billy Williams's and Jim Hickman's best season, the great Cubs pitching rotation, and statistical and computer analyses of how the Eastern Division Cubs would have done playing in the Western Division— and in the playoffs and World Series.
The book shows how the baseball, pennant races, and Wrigley Field of 1970 differed from the modern era. It analyzes "what might have been" if different scenarios had played out, and reveals what happened to each of the players. For Chicago Cubs fans of that era or any era, the book is a must-read.
"My book is both fun and analytical,"
Bike is excited to make an appearance at Madison Street Books.
"Madison Street Books is a great independent bookstore with a terrific selection of books," Bike said. "The staff there is so pleasant to work with, and I'm looking forward to the booksigning."
