Sports Publishing LLC. 2003

More Tales from the Cubs Dugout lets the reader bite off a huge chunk of tasty Cubs fun and fantasy, heartbreak and happiness during unforgettable afternoons in the sun, rain, wind and fog that make every inning an adventure at Wrigley Field. It's written in sprightly style by Bob Logan, who covered baseball for 32 years as a Chicago Tribune and Daily Herald sportswriter. Logan broke in on the Cubs beat when Leo "the Lip" Durocher was their manager, struggling to overcome an agonizing finish to the incredible summer of 1969. This book is crammed with stories, quotes, and anecdotes and inside stuff from his personal relationship with the managers, players and front-office people on the Cub scene since then. This is a book you'll want to read over again, use for ammunition in those Hot Stove League bull sessions about whether this year really is that long-awaited "next year," and get extra copies for friends-especially young Cub fans.
