1935 World Series by Baseball Almanac (955 words)
The Detroit Tigers were still searching for that first elusive championship title as they stood atop the American League and returned for their second consecutive World Series against Charley Grimm's Chicago Cubs (who had won twenty-one consecutive games in September).
Chicago was not on par (at the plate) managing a team high of only twenty-one homers for Chuck Klein and ninety-one runs batted in from Gabby Hartnett.
The Detroit Tigers were the first American League team to appear in two (2) World Series and the first in three (3) Series.
Bears (730 words)
The Chicago Bears professional football team began in 1920 as the Decatur Staleys, an industrial team sponsored by the A. Staley Company, a starch manufacturer.
Organized and coached by Chicago native and former University of Illinois player George S. Halas, the Staleys recruited employees and former college players and helped establish the American Professional Football Association, which became the National Football League in 1922.
With the help of former University of Chicago and Stanford coach Clark Shaughnessy, Halas's offense perfected the T formation with “man in motion.” The game against Washington was the first championship carried on network radio, broadcast to 120 stations.
