Happy Sandberg Day!

Twenty-three years ago today, Willie McGee hit for the cycle against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Unfortunately for Willie, his feat is nearly forgotten. That game is more famous for Ryne Sandberg's game-tying home runs in the ninth and tenth innings.

I didn't see the game, either in person or on TV. I was out and about that day, but I caught the last few innings on the radio. It was the first time that season that I started to believe that we really could win the division.

Fortunately for all us Cub Fans, this game is included in this DVD set. I'll be enjoying it again this weekend...
