The 1930 Chicago Cubs went 90-64 and finished in second place in the National League. In the peak year of the lively ball era, the Cubs scored 998 runs, third most in the majors. Future Hall of Famers Kiki Cuyler, Gabby Hartnett, and Hack Wilson led the offense. Hack Wilson set a major league for most RBIs in one season with 191. Wilson's 1930 season was considered one of the best ever by a hitter. In addition to hitting 56 home runs, leading the league with 105 walks, and boasting a batting average of .356, he drove in 191 runs, a mark that remains one of the most untouchable MLB records. He recorded that total without hitting a grand slam.
