    64. Tony Murray III says:

      Other interesting tid bits about my Grandfather are: He was drafted right out of Old St. Patrick’s High School; after his playing days were over he became a Chicago Police officer and ran the CPD baseball team; and as an attorney, one of his clients was Hall of Famer Rogers Horsnby – whose affairs he handled for many years.

      • Matt Maldre says:

        Tony Murray III, thank you so much for sharing the additional information about your grandfather. I was looking up Chicago Cubs with the initials TM. Your grandfather and Terry Mulholland are the only cubs with those initials. I’m trying to figure out the sequence of his at bats in his two MLB games. The box score doesn’t list if he got his hit in his first or second at bat. Also, was the HBP in his last game also in his last at bat?

    160. I listen to Vince Scully call the Koufax no-no game against the Cubs in L.A. when I lived in San Francisco. It came in must clearer then when I was a kid listening to Harry Caray on KMOX announce the Cards at night from St.Louis in Chicago. Vince always knew how to paint a game for his radio listeners. He mentioned the time on the stadium clock. He build up each pitch… I have to admit… I was pulling for Sandy!

      OK… really nice website. I love all the cubs info and like you probably grew up on the near north side.
      One question. How did you upload the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off part? Ferris was actually in Left field at Wrigley in the movie. But your scenes are all backwards. I am thinking it is just the film turned over as the whole scene appears backward.

      Just a big fan of the Cubs and of the movie.

      Keep up the great work on just one bad century.

      Best of Luck, Dan O’

      Good evening/early morning, Rick – Cliff from San Francisco – been 3 years I think since I asked you a question which you put on your blog as to why/how the Chicago Cubs and St Louis Cardinals became arch rivals compared to the Giants-Dodgers which started in New York and the animosity stayed when both teams went West to the same state. Anyway, congrats to Cubs (a few weeks late) and to my win-the-World-Series-every-even-numbered-year SF Giants who just made New York’s Citi Field as quiet as a library in the 9th. Sorry if you Cubbies would have wanted the Mets for a revenge rematch from 2015. At the beginning of the season, everyone was talking about a Giants-Cubs showdown for the NL pennant – and it looked that way until after the All-Star Game – my SF never really got its mojo back – so, though it won’t be a sweep by any side, I think my Giants will not have enough energy to beat your Cubs in the upcoming week (we only have ONE Madison Bumgarner!) – so, more congratulations to Chicago (but I’ll be VERY happy if I’m wrong!!) – Just make sure you also “beat LA” – saw your video “My Cubs – I’m not betting against” – loved pausing the video to read the editorial cartoons – and you gave me a preview of a tune when HAMILTON comes to San Francisco next year – my mother came back to SF after visiting our “White-Sox” cousins in Naperville (mom’s the only Cub fan – she was about 10 at her first baseball game at Wrigley during World War II), and she tells me that the SUN-TIMES leans to the Cubs in coverage, but I saw that your TRIBUNE had a great article on “108 things a Cub’s fan should know” – loved reason 99: George Will says Cubs fans are 99.44% scar-tissue – that’s all I wanted to say – good job on the website, this recent video, the Cubs having the fortitude to get to the post-season in consecutive years, and no hard feelings if MAYBE the Giants pull it out – 🙂

      I just recently got George Mitterwald’s autograph. It’s one of the nicest looking signatures I’ve seen from a ballplayer… Also, it’s funny looking at pictures of him from his Cubs days, he looks nothing like the clean shaven, younger ballplayer that he was in the 60’s with the Twins!
