100 years ago
Exactly 100 years ago today, Cubs pitcher Orval Overall threw a one hitter against the Phillies. The only hit came off the bat of Sherrie McGee.
The Cubs were in first place, on their way to their fourth World Series of the past five years.
Overall would sit out the next two seasons in a contract dispute.
