Boys of Zimmer - 30th Anniversary Series - 2/20/1989

While recently blogging about a random Cubs pitcher, Pat Perry, I became immersed in articles from 1988 and 1989. This is the 30th anniversary of the 1989 Cubs "Boys of Zimmer," a team that reached the postseason after a five year hiatus. This daily series will look back at Chicago Tribune articles and columns from 30 years ago, day by day.

The big news heading into the 1989 baseball season was the Cubs trading off Rafael Palmeiro along with Jamie Moyer and Drew Hall for Mitch Williams, Steve Wilson, Paul Kilgus, Curt Wilkerson, Pablo Delgado, and Luis Benitez.
