    Only one Cub player was ever born in Italy. Seems like a good day to feature him…

    ~Julio Bonetti 1911 (Cubs 1940)
    Julio was one of the rare big leaguers who was born in Italy. He pitched briefly for the Browns before coming to the Cubs, and didn’t get much of a shot with Chicago. He only pitched in one game before he was shipped out. Bonetti was later quietly banned from the game for associating with gamblers.
