“More than a baseball book. It’s a love story between a ballplayer and his family.”
-- John Bombatch, Middletown News Journal, April 4, 2009.
Award-winning author Roger Snell wrote this debut book in 2009, 80 years after one of the greatest Cub teams ever.
Cub fans thought 1929 was a long time to wait for a return to the World Series.
Ace pitcher Charlie Root got them there, despite hiding an off-season secret that threatened his career. It was the only time daughter Della ever saw her father cry.
Root still holds Cub records for the most wins and innings pitched.
