WTTW Channel 11 - Bleacher Bums (Introduction, 1984)
In honor of opening day for the Chicago Cubs, here's the long-unseen WTTW Channel 11 production of Bleacher Bums. Originally produced in 1979, and set in 1977, this broadcast is from 1984 (the last time it was shown on TV), when the Cubs had a good run at the pennant. Enjoy!
And if you're interested, be sure to visit friend of the museum Kasey Ignarski's website where you can purchase his book, Cubs By The Numbers - A Complete Team History of the Chicago Cubs by Uniform Number.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Saturday, September 29th 1984 during the 7pm to 8:30pm timeframe.
