About This Show

In 1930, Hack Wilson was the sports hero of Chicago — the Sosa or Jordan of his day. In this world premiere of Hit Man: The Hack Wilson Story, we return to the golden age of baseball 75 years ago when the Cubs were so close to World Series glory. But Hack’s life is a cautionary tale with remarkable contemporary parallels, with his off-field lifestyle overshadowing his truly amazing athletic achievements. His record of 191 RBI’s has never been challenged, and his record 56 home runs in the 1920 season was not surpassed for several generations.
