About the book
The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, but they still have the game's most loyal fans. The Cardinals have won the World Series more than any other National League team in history. The Cubs have the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field, where fans watch games from apartment rooftops across the street. The Cardinals have "The Birds on the Bat," one of the most distinctive logos in all of sports. The Cubs all-time roster features Hall of Famers Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, and the incredible Ernie Banks. The Cardinals counter with Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, and the great Stan Musial. In 1998, the Cubs' Sammy Sosa broke the single-season home run record with 66 dingers, only to be surpassed by Cardinal Mark McGwire's astounding 70 home runs. Now, with 101 Reasons to Love the Cubs and 101 Reasons to Love the Cardinals, fans can have at their fingertips the countless moments of exhilarating baseball these two teams have provided. Filled with stunning historical and contemporary photographs, fascinating trivia, and amazing statistics, these books are guaranteed hits for Cub fans, Cardinal fans, and baseball fans in general.
