While recently blogging about a random Cubs pitcher, Pat Perry, I became immersed in articles from 1988 and 1989. This is the 30th anniversary of the 1989 Cubs “Boys of Zimmer,” a team that reached the postseason after a five year hiatus.
This daily series will look back at Chicago Tribune articles and columns from 30 years ago, day by day.
On February 8, 1989, the Cubs made a scouting change. The club fired Brandy Davis. Davis, born Robert Brandon Davis, would receive some good news later in the year as he was inducted into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame. Davis passed away in 2005 at the age of 77.
