P.K. Wrigley

P.K. Wrigley passed away on this day in 1977. He was the Cubs owner for 45 of the 101 years the Cubs haven't won it, and he played a big part in that.

The P.K. Wrigley story is here.

You know, I've always considered Wrigley one of the villains in the Cubs story, but I recently read Leo Durocher's book "Nice Guys Finish Last," and Durocher called P.K. the finest man he ever worked for.

Maybe he really was a nice guy.

Although now that I mention it, what was the name of Durocher's book again?
