Go figure: In 1945, when the All-Star Game was canceled due to war restrictions, a record 7 Cubs were named to the team.

*I guess we have a new record, established this season.

On August 18, 1996 pitcher Jamie Navarro committed 3 errors and also hit a batter in the third inning of a game v. Houston. Nevertheless, he still got the win that day.

Pitcher Fred Goldsmith, who won 107 games with Chicago between 1880 and 1884, is often credited as the true inventor of the curve ball.

Allegedly, a Cubs pitcher named Jim St. Vrain was so confused at the plate that, on one occasion in 1902 while batting left handed, he ran toward third base after making contact with the ball.
