Chicago Cubs 1984-2017 True, this was Ryne Sandburg’s Year,and the Cubs entered post-season play for the first time since 1945, but the cast also included Big Red, Sarge, Jody, Leon, and fleet-footed OF Bobby Dernier. Quick quiz: name the club’s chief relief pitcher. Hint: he’s currently 3rd in the ML for career saves. Just 2 years removed from his rookie year, Sandburg developed into a record-setting hitter as well as a 9X Gold-Glove 2B. But there’s more to come! Just ahead are Mark Grace, Andre Dawson, Greg Maddux, Sammy Sosa, Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and the long, long-awaited World Series Championship.
