Cubs Fact:

Charlie Grimm managed the Cubs in three different stints: 1932-38, 1944-49 and again in 1960.

in 1960 the team got off to a slow start and Wrigley switched Grimm out with the radio play by play guy Lou Boudreau. Grimm had done radio in the past so he gave it a shot before heading back to the FO. In 1961 he was part of the College of Coaches but not a named head coach. After he died his ashes were spread on Wrigley Field.
