Nov 10, 2017

The Houston Astros just won their first World Series championship, dethroning the defending champion Chicago Cubs.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us how although the Cubs dominate the headlines in Chicago, it was the city's other team that gave its baseball fans their first World Series title at the beginning of the 20th century.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, the author of  Pops: The Willie Stargell Story and the co-author, with his son, Stephen, of  The Slide: Leyland, Bonds and the Star-Crossed Pittsburgh Pirates.
