And for more than a century, those teams –their successes and failures—have been chronicled by some of the best sportswriters ever to wield a pen. With From Black Sox to Three-Peats, veteran sportswriter Ron Rapoport gathers one hundred of the best columns and articles from Chicago newspapers in one unforgettable volume. The result is a history of Chicago sports as it was seen, in the moment, by a group of writers who were as passionate about the games as any fan, and who used their intimate knowledge and powerful writing to share the sports stories that would become defining moments for the city. As powerful, passionate, and pugnacious as the city it celebrates, From Black Sox to Three-Peats is a love letter not just to Chicago sports, but to the experience of being a fan, and the thrills (and heartbreaks) that only sports can deliver.
