This 1989 sports video serves a dual purpose. Not only does it offer a capsule history of the Chicago Cubs, but it's also a tribute to the Cubbies' manager Don Zimmer. In a way, it is also a testimonial to the team's doggedly loyal fans, who've stuck by the Cubs from one losing season to another. Naturally, the video de-emphasizes the failures, concentrating instead on the team's sporadic winning streak. The 60-minute Boys of Zimmer was originally released by Orion Video.
