Depression Deja Vu all over again? (NYTimes article)

Interesting article in today's NY Times about baseball in the '30s during Great Depression. Several mentions of the Cubs. Cool pictures too.

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... ;-)
