Cubs Trivia:

When Cubs announcer Bert Wilson would us the term "Bingo to Bango to Bilko", what double play combination was he referring to?

I have never heard of Bert Wison, Bingo, Bango or Bilko...

this question is a little tougher than the "Wild Thing" reliever from the other day..

I will say Tinkers to Evers to Chance just as a really bad guess...doubt any of their games were ever announced...

If it's from the 50's then the others are Banks and Gene Baker, right? Which one's Bango and which one's Bingo?

Banks = Bingo, Baker = Bango. Don't ask me why.

Nice teamwork gang.
