Kyle Hendrick's emergence in the Cubs 2016 rotation was an important part of the Cubs World Series championship run in 2016. Hendricks led the National League in Earned Run Average in 2016.

On this day, Hendricks pitches a complete game 5-hitter at Wrigley Field as the Cubs defeat the Phillies 4-1. Dexter Fowler leads off the scoring with a leadoff home run in the 1st inning.

Ernie Bank's 500th home run. This may be the first video I ever saw about the Cubs, perhaps the video I've seen the most in my 30+ years watching the Cubs and it's still one of my favorites. Can't go wrong with Ernie Banks and Jack Brickhouse's "Hey Hey"




May 20, 2006
A very memorable fight between the White Sox and Cubs. Michael Barrett & AJ Pierzynski










Love this video of Kris Bryant getting pranked by Greg Maddux early in spring training this year.



Remember when Dexter Fowler surprised his Cubs teammates at Spring Training in 2016?

Kosuke Fukudome's debut with the Chicago Cubs was quite a day as he goes 3 for 3, doubles on the first pitch he see's in the major leagues and hits a 3-run home run off Brewers closer, Eric Gagne to tie the game in the ninth inning. Unfortunately, the Cubs do lose the game in 10 innings, 4-3.

Len Kasper and Bob Brenly call of Fukudome's dramatic home run.
