Cubs' 79 Official Roster Book

Looking today at my 1979 Cubs official roster book, I found the following interesting facts:

  • Dave (Kingman) is a sales representative for a major airline during the off-season.
  • Available on the morning of every home game are more than 17,000 general grandstand and bleacher seats, for which no reservations are needed.
  • During the winter months, Mick (Kelleher) is a real estate agent.
  • Reserved box seats are $6 for adults and children. Reserved grandstand seats are $4.50 for adults and children. General admission seats are $3 for adults and $1.50 for children. Admission to the bleachers is $1.50 for all ages.
  • Special Service for your Group: Just call Ernie Banks, manager of group sales, at 312-EB7-1919.
  • Single games start at 1:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 1:15 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Double headers start at noon.
  • (Willie Hernandez) is a welder during the off-season.
  • This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of SB Nation or Al Yellon, managing editor (unless it's a FanPost posted by Al). FanPost opinions are valued expressions of opinion by passionate and knowledgeable baseball fans.
