Today in Cubs history: April 16


The Cubs and Cardinals hook up for a wild game. St. Louis prevails 12-11, despite three Cubs hitting two homers apiece, Ernie banks and Dee Fondy going back to back twice and three consecutive home runs in the second inning. Randy Jackson, Ernie Banks, and Dee Fondy go back to back to back in the second at St. Louis. Later, Banks, Fondy got back to back again, but the Cardinals win in 11 innings, 12-11. In 1955, the Cubs hit three home runs in an inning five times.


Sammy Sosa ties the game with the Pirates in the bottom of the ninth with his 512th Cubs Career homer (Ernie Banks). Cubs win 11-10

WGN-TV broadcasts its first big-league game, with Jack Brickhouse calling White Sox's 4-1 win vs. Cubs at Wrigley Field.

The future super station WGN-TV televises a baseball game for the first time. With Jack Brickhouse doing the play-by-play, the White Sox beat the Cubs 4-1 in the first game of the Windy City Classic played at Wrigley Field.

In the Cubs second game of the season, right-hander Burt Hooton no-hits the Phillies, 4-0. The 22-year old rookie knuckleballer, making only his fourth major league start, walks seven and strikes out seven during his remarkable Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

The Cardinals deal a declining Dizzy Dean to the Cubs for pitchers Curt Davis and Clyde Shoun and $200,000.
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?
