    Leave a Comment

    The #Cubs’ 10-2 win evened the series at 2-2 and ensured it will move back to Wrigley Field after Game 5 at Dodger Stadium on Thursday. And with the Cubs now owning home-field advantage in what will essentially be a best-of-three series and their offense again appearing like the world-class unit it was all season, they appear the favorite to move on to the franchise’s first World Series since 1945.

  3. Cubs Draft Pick # 622-How Mark Grace went from the North Pole to the North Side

    In 1985 Grace was a junior at San Diego State when he was drafted by the Cubs in the 24th round and offered $5,000, but rather than sign he planned to go back to school for his senior year. His coach suggested that Grace spend his summer with the North Pole Nicks, in the Alaska League, where he could play without endangering his amateur status. Grace made $250 a month painting houses during the day and played ball (very well) at night. The Cubs took notice at the end of the Alaska League season and upped their offer to $20,000. Grace signed on the dotted line. Three years later he began a big league career (out of Double-A) that would include three All-Star appearances and four Gold Gloves.
