CHICAGO (CBS) — 88-year-old Charlie Greenstein recalls the players he saw on the field that early October day in 1938.
“Augie Galan, Stan Hack at third base, Cavarretta at first base,” Greenstein said. “I was just a young kid at the time.”
He was only 11 when he sat in the bleachers to see one of the Cubs’ last appearances in the World Series.
“The Cubs were defeated by the Yankees four straight.”
