One for the Record History Books

What a World Series awaits us! 
More than setting records, it will, 
one way or another,
make history.

Chicago has already made history. It is the first time since the troops  returned home from World War II that they have been in the World Series.
In fact my dad was on a troop ship in the Atlantic heading home when they were in that Series.

If Cleveland wins
it will be the first time since 1948.
(To show you how old I am- 
I was 2 months old!)

Let me tell you the top news from the last time the
Cubs WON the World Series:

  • Petroleum production begins in Middle East
  • Henry Ford develops the first Model T automobile, which sells for $850.
  • Baden Powell Starts the Boy Scouts,
  • Billy Murray hits the charts with "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"
  • The Gideons put the first Bibles in hotel rooms
  • William Howard Taft elected president
  • Oh- and that veteran returning home from Europe after World War II was only 3 years old.
