A Kiss For Charley
82 Yrs Ago Today In Chicago - September 20, 1932
The title of this one reflects a common problem with old wire photos: SPELLING! Instead of “Charley” Grimm, it should be “Charlie”. Oh well, I’ve seen worse…
~ Wire Tag: “One of the first to congratulate Charlie Grimm, manager of the Chicago Cubs, Sept. 20 after the Cubs clinched the pennant was Mrs. Grimm. She is shown here bestowing the kiss that a pennant won. The scene was just after the Cubs downed the Pirates from Pittsburh, 5 to 2, in the first game of a doubleheader.”

The '46 Cubs still managed to get to a respectable 82-71 record despite hitting only 56 home runs (although probably helped by the pitching staff’s 3.24 ERA).
