Interesting article in today's NY Times about baseball in the '30s during Great Depression. Several mentions of the Cubs. Cool pictures too. Loved this part:
"Despite the need for new sources of revenue, many of baseball’s hidebound owners continued to resist allowing live radio broadcasts of their games, fearing fewer fans would attend in person. This attitude persisted even though radio had helped generate interest in, as well as money for, minor league teams."
Now we know where Dollar Bill Wirtz got his ownership acumen from... ;-)
