This unique look back at Chicago baseball history researches 50 former Cubs players—some of them famous, many of them fairly obscure, all of them unforgettable. That is because they are, after all, part of the family. Part of Cub Nation.
From Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks, to lesser known players such as Pete LaCock, avid fans of this long-suffering team will remember them for every heartbreak, every costly error and, yes, every glorious moment. Cubs: Where Have You Gone? serves as both a yearbook of unforgettable memories and an "alumni guide" for fans to find out where their heroes have gone since capturing their full attention at Wrigley Field.
Featured Cubs include Ferguson Jenkins, Andy Pafko, Dickie Noles, Gary Matthews, Billy Williams, Milt Pappas, Bobby Dernier, Lee Smith, Scott Sanderson, former manager Jim Frey, Shawon Dunston, Ed Lynch, Don Zimmer, Steve Trout, Ron Santo, Steve Stone, and former general manager Dallas Green. Veteran Chicago Tribune sportswriter Fred Mitchell, who has seen both the best and the worst the Cubs have had to offer through the years, is the author of this unique compilation.
