Editorial Reviews

Richard Miller
The Chicago Cubs are the only baseball franchise that has operated continuously in the same city from its first game in 1876 to today. During that time over 1,750 ballplayers wore Cub uniforms. Authors Warren Wilbert and William Hageman have chosen from that long history Cubs players whose splendid banner seasons merit inclusion in their book, Chicago Cubs: Seasons at the Summit, The 50 Greatest Individual Seasons.

Strict guidelines were used to choose and rank the selections. Players could be listed only once, although other great years of players selected are noted as afterwards to their chapters. Players are evaluated in how the league and the Cubs fared in the player’s big season and in comparison to the hitting and pitching characteristics of the league overall in the season. Ballpark idiosyncracies are weighed. Final statistical values are awarded in accordance with highly sophisticated sabermetric formulas.
