The Chicago Cubs have a long and fabled history great baseball players. In the early days, Chicago Cub players like Cap Anson, Al Spalding and Larry Corcoran were some of the top Cubs. In the early 1900's a famous double play combination of Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance. A few great pitching greats from the early years include Three Finger Brown, Ed Reulback and Orval Overall.

Great Chicago Cub players in the 1910s through the 1930s include Hack Wilson, Gabby Hartnett, Hippo Vaughn, Kiki Cuyler, Rogers Hornsby, Charlie Grimm and Stan Hack.

The 1940s included the last Chicago Cubs World Series team in 1945 led by Phil Cavaretta and Stan Hack. A great pitching staff was led by Claude Passeau and Hank Bowry. The 1950s marked the debut of Chicago Cubs player great, Ernie Banks.

The 1960s were filled with great Chicago Cubs players and teams that couldn't quite make it to the pennant. Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo and Fergie Jenkins were the great Chicago Cubs players of this era.

The 1970s was another lean decade, but a few great Cubs players include: Bill Madlock, Bill Buckner, Rick Reuschel and Bruce Sutter.

The 1980s marked the emergence of the two of the best chicago Cubs players of all time, Ryne Sandberg and Greg Maddux. Other great Chicago Cubs players include: Jody Davis, Rick Sutcliffe and Lee Smith.



Cub fans from the 1980's will certainly remember how General Manager, Dallas Green brought a 1984 playoff appearance to the Cubs. Below is an article from a former minor league player drafted by Dallas Green. Today, he makes hand painted baseballs. Both the article and the website are very interesting. Check it out!!

The 1990s brought about the era of great Cubs players like Mark Grace, Sammy Sosa that joined Ryne Sandberg and Lee Smith. The late 90s had the debut of Kerry Wood.

The 2000s brought in players like Mark Prior, Wood, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Zambrano. 2010 shows a few young promising Cubs players for the future like Starlin Castro, Tyler Colvin and Andrew Cashner.

I know that I've skipped over many other Cubs greats, but over the course of one hundred years plus, there are many out there.
