I am not sure if you noted it, but a long time Cub favorite of mine, Bob Rush, passed away on March 19th in Mesa, AZ.
As a kid growing up I admired him as a strong and fast hardball thrower and he was with the Cubs in the late 40’s. I am sure many old timers, such as I, will remember him. The obit said that he served in the US Army in WWII from 44 to 1946 and then played with the Cubs, White Sox, and Milwaukee Braves. He started a game in the World Series as late as 1958 so he had a long career in the Majors. Please let old time Cub fans know about this very nice man.
