What unusual feat did Cubs reliever Elmer "Smokey" Singleton accomplish on May 10 1959?
In the first game of a doubleheader, as the Cubs reliever he defeated reliever Lindy McDaniel of the Cardinals 109. In the nightcap, McDaniel was the winner and Singleton the loser 87.

When Joe Pepitone was acquired from Houston in July 1970, the Brooklyn-born Pepi went on a hitting tear, driving in 31 runs in his first 31 games as a Cub.

The question may not have been properly phrased. But my calender says Gene Baker 1953.

from wikipedia-

Quote:
In 1953, after playing well in Los Angeles, Baker became the first black player ever to make it onto the Cubs roster. However, he injured himself, and by the time he was again healthy, Ernie Banks had become the first black player to appear for the Cubs. Banks had been signed primarily to be Baker's roommate.
So Gene was on the roster first and got injured. So i guess he did wear the jersey first.

A series of crazy circumstances at Wrigley Field in the fourth inning of a June 30, 1959 Cubs/Cardinals tussle led to a brief situation in which there were actually 2 balls in play simultaneously.

Cardinal Stan Musial draws walk on wild pitch and attempts to advance an extra base as Cubs third baseman Alvin Dark (original ball) and pitcher Bob Anderson (umpire-issued new ball) both fire balls toward second base in St. Louis' eventual 4-1 win.

Trivia

During the entire decade of the 1950's, the Cubs did not have a single 20 game winner, but 3 pitchers did manage to loose 20 in a season. Who were they?

Between 1922 and 1951, Cubs spring training was usually held on Catalina Island, California.
