Cubs Trivia:

Which Chicago native won the batting title and MVP Award in 1945 with a .355 average, the highest by a Cubs hitter since 1900?

I don't know much about the '45 team other than many teams had guys serving, while many of the Cubs guys were already done with their service...

my only guess would be Phil Caveretta, but I may be way, way off on the era...and he doesn't strike me as an MVP

Y'all might as well not play when Chris is around. He knows his stuff! Cavarretta it is.

OK, smart guy. To whom did Honus Wagner pop out to end the 6th inning of the Cubs' Memorial Day loss in 1908?

Well, shit. I really have no idea if Honus Wagner even popped out to end any inning that game. I was just prepared to be awfully impressed.
