A Side of Cubs Videos for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the CCO!

It’s truly hard to believe the fourth Thursday in November has rolled around again. I’m beginning to sound like my parents, but where does the time go?

So for those looking for their ‘Daily Cubs Fix’ on this day filled with family, friends, food and football, here are a few videos from days gone by and some fun baseball links to get you through the day.

Baseball Links

Lee Warren posted why baseball and radio are the perfect marriage.

Did Johnny Evers publish how baseball was developing into an exact mathematical sport in 1910? Grant Brisbee found Touching Second: The Science of Baseball published by Hall of Famer Johnny Evers. And in his book, Evers attempted to explain how winning teams are built, what a manager does, the importance of the catcher and he published a diagram showing territory covered by fielders. Click here to read the book.

There is an art to keeping score and every scoresheet tells a story.

Do you know the rules of the game? Take the quiz posted by ESPN.

Jayson Stark posted a report on why players talk into their gloves and who started the trend.
