About
Crazy '08 recounts the 1908 season - the year when Peerless Leader Frank Chance's men went toe to toe with John McGraw and Christy Mathewson's New York Giants and Honus Wagner's Pittsburgh Pirates in the greatest pennant race the National League has ever seen. The American League had its own three-cornered pennant fight, and players like Cy Young, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson and the egregiously crooked Hal Chase ensured that the junior circuit had its moments. Simply put, 1908 is the year that baseball grew up. Oh, and it was the last time the Cubs won the World Series.
