The Forgotten 1970 Chicago Cubs: Go and Glow

Alumni Exchange

August 25, 2021

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Chicago, IL 60612

Many Chicago Cubs fans remember the beloved 1969 team, but William Bike finds the 1970 Cubs more interesting. He will walk us through his recently published book about the 1970 team including its interesting characters, Ernie Banks’s 500th home run, “the basket” in the outfield and how the manager’s radio show caused clubhouse chaos. Bike, who was a long-time UIC staff member, is an avid historian and journalist, associate editor of Gazette Chicago and senior vice president of ANB Communications/Central Park Communications. Bring your questions and share your memories during this hour on August 25 at 12 p.m. CT focused on the Chicago Cubs.
