I asked Paul Sullivan if he knew anything about I.E. Sanborn.
“No, never heard of him,” Sullivan said.
Well, Sanborn has the distinction of being the last sportswriter in the Chicago Tribune to write the story of the Cubs winning the World Series. On Oct. 15, 1908, Sanborn’s story detailed how the then powerful North Siders claimed their second straight title.
“Wow, I didn’t know that,” Sullivan said.
