NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyhorse Publishing will publish a new book on the Cubs' historic win—A Season for the Ages, by Al Yellon—due in bookstores on December 6 but already available on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
For 108 years baseball fans on the north side of Chicago and around the world suffered the most notable championship drought of all time. From the "Curse of the Billy Goat" to the Steve Bartman game, it seemed fated that the Chicago Cubs would never reach the pinnacle of baseball and win another World Series Championship.
Thankfully, all things come to an end. Behind the brilliant baseball mind of Theo Epstein, the masterful management of Joe Maddon, and the legendary play of the Cubs' young core and wily veterans, the Chicago Cubs are finally the champions of the world! In honor of this historic achievement, Sports Publishing presents: A Season for the Ages: How the 2016 Chicago Cubs Brought a World Series to the North Side and Changed the World!
A Season for the Ages, a collector's item for Cubs fans across the globe, was written by Al Yellon, the founder and editor-in-chief of the popular SB Nation Cubs site Bleed Cubbie Blue. It features a foreword by Pat Hughes, who has been the radio play-by-play voice of the Chicago Cubs for twenty-one seasons.
