  1. Hank, not Frank.
    Hank was, of course, in the last World Series the Cubs have been in, period. (They lost to Detroit 4-3.)
    He pitched for Fordham, then was brought up by the Yankees, where he had an ERA of under 3.00.
    The Cubbies acquired him for their stretch run in ’45 and he had the highest win % of any pitcher on the roster.
