Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1932 Chicago Cubs season was a season in American baseball. The team won the National League pennant with a record of 90-64, finishing four games ahead of the second-place Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cubs lost the 1932 World Series to the New York Yankees in four straight games. Notable transactions: August 3, 1932: Rogers Hornsby was released by the Cubs. "Babe Ruth's called shot" was the home run hit by Babe Ruth in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, held on October 1, 1932 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. During the at bat, which came against Charlie Root, Ruth made a pointing gesture, which existing film confirms, but the exact nature of his gesture is ambiguous. Although neither fully confirmed nor refuted, the story goes that Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers during the at bat. It was supposedly a declaration that he would hit a home run to this part of the park. On the next pitch, Ruth hit a home run to center field.show more
